Vol. X. NEW YORK, JANUARY, 1879. No. 1. 

By Charles B. Moore. 

The earl}' history of this town requires that dates be clearly stated, and 
places be kept distinct. Both have often been confused. 

Long Island could be approached from many directions. Its posses- 
sion was coveted by the English, then in New England, on the north and 
east, and by the Dutch at the west, where the passage was narrow. It 
had numerous bands of Indians, with whom the whites of both nations 
for several years traded. Both English and Dutch were actively in pur- 
suit of beaver. The fur trade was profitable. Fishing, also, was an im- 
portant business ; for food was scarce. The English coming in crowds, 
sought rish more than the Dutch. The long ocean beach afforded facili- 
ties for getting wampum, which greatly added to the attractions. There 
were struggles between English and Dutch about the western part of the 
island, but none (unless merely on paper), for the eastern half. 

The villages of Southampton and Southold, at the east, in the year 1640, 
were settled by Englishmen, who bargained with the agent of Lord Ster- 
ling, under his English patent, and with the Indians, and who took posses- 
sion without the slightest opposition, and without interference from the 
Dutch. These villages, afterwards the centres of townships, were about eighty- 
five or ninety miles in a direct line from New York, and were separated 
from each other by Peconic Bay. Southampton was east of Shinecock 
Bay, which could be entered at the south from the ocean, and from which 
the whites and Indians could readily communicate with Peconic Bay at 
Canoe place ; and thence across Peconic Bay, or across Shelter Island, 
with Southold. The communications -vestwardly on the north side of Long 
Island, by the Sound, and on the south side by the great South Bay, were 
also comparatively easy. Canoes or small boats were used for travel, and 
occasionally larger vessels. 

The principal beaver-dams were west of both these villages. The 
vacant space between them and the Dutch — occupied only by In- 
dians — was large ; embracing necks of land projecting out on each side, 
north and south, many miles, which were separated from each other by 
bays. Into many of the bays small streams ran, called rivers, being as 
large as many of the rivers of England, and which generally started from 
swamps far inland. The island was so closely covered with tangled wood 

6 The Early History of Hempstead, L. I. [Jan., 

and intersected by streams and morasses as to prevent passages on foot, 
and prevent travel by land. The swamps and thickets were numerous 
and large, and in some places the beaver was plenty. " Huppogues," the 
Narragansett word for "beaver place," was in modern Smithtown. Look 
at a map, and see how far the Nissequogue River of Smithtown extended 
south from the Sound across the Island, and how far the Connecticut and 
the Yaphank (called Carman's) River, extended north from the Bay, and 
then estimate the swamps (some of them now mill-ponds), at the sources 
of these streams, and it will be seen how the travel by land east and west 
was interrupted. The numerous Indians, maddened by defeats, will com- 
plete the picture. 

Purchases from or conquests of the Indians, and actual occupation, 
were essential to either party, English or Dutch, for a good and peaceable 
title to land. By the national law of Grotius, both had a right to trade 
with the Indian residents. By the English rule claimed by Selden, which 
excluded strangers from the narrow seas, these two English possessions 
might keep the Dutch out of the Peconic Bay, while it gave the Dutch the 
East River and the Hudson. The English, in 1637, had greatly awed the 
Indians by the conquest of the Pequots, and this seriously affected the In- 
dians at the eastern end of Long Island. The Manhansett tribe left Shel- 
ter Island, and moved west. The Sachem of Cutchogue, in Southold, was 
with the Pequots, and when he returned to Long Island, was very submis- 
sive. Men of his tribe who did not go west and were not destroyed, were 
completely subjugated. 

Early in 1643, Indians at the west combined, made sudden attacks upon 
Dutch villages, and upon small western places occupied by English- 
men, and overpowered them. The disasters and distress were eloquently 
depicted in the Memorial of the Eight Men, who acted as the Dutch Gov- 
ernor's council, addressed to the States-General in Holland, dated Port 
Amsterdam (N. Y.), 24th October, 1643. 

It commences : " Rightly hath one of the ancients said that there is no 
misery on earth, however great, that does not manifest itself in time of 
war." They said : 

" Having enjoyed for a long time an indifferent peace with the heathen, 
Almighty God hath finally, through his righteous judgment, kindled the 
fire of war around us, during the current year, with the indians ; in which 
not only numbers of innocent people, men, women, and children have been 
murdered in their houses and at their work, and swept captives away; 
whereby this place with all its inhabitants is come to the greatest ruin ; 
but all the boweries and plantations at Pavonia" (now Jersey City and 
Hudson City), "with 25 lasts" (2,700 bushels) " of corn, and other produce 
have been burnt, and the cattle destroyed. Long Island is destitute also 
of inhabitants and stock, except a few insignificant places over against the 
main, which are about to be abandoned " (referring, doubtless, to Astoria, 
and Newtown). "The English who have settled among us have not 
escaped. They too, except in one place, are all murdered and burnt," etc., 
etc. (See copy in 1. O'Callaghan's New Netherlands, 289.) The excepted 
place where the English were saved, was at Gravesend, at the southwest, 
where Lady Moody had gathered an armed force of forty men and de- 
fended herself against Indian attacks. This formal paper, it will be re- 
marked, did not notice nor claim Southold or Southampton as Dutch. 
They were thriving villages. 

1879] The Early History of Hetnpsiead, L. I. y 

Early in 1644, a military force of white men, Dutch and English, having 
been raised, organized, and trained, the Indians in Westchester County 
and the western parts of Long Island, were attacked in their villages and 
forts, and subdued. There were thirty-five English soldiers at first ; after- 
wards fifty, gathered chiefly in New England, or by Lady Moody ; and the 
skill, discipline, and courage of Capt. John Underhill, an experienced Eng- 
lish soldier, who had fought in Holland, and against Indians in New Eng- 
land — and of some of his devoted followers — were brought into use and 
contributed to success. Some of the soldiers had been sent to Stamford, 
the western settlement of Connecticut, to protect the whites against Indi- 
ans. There was much slaughter at Greenwich, Conn., near Stamford, and 
on Long Island, in Queen's County, terrifying the Indians into complete 

"They solicited the intervention of Capt. Underhill to procure a cessa- 
tion of hostilities," and peace was concluded between them and the Dutch. 
Long Island sachems signed articles, and agreed to communicate these 
articles to their sachem on " Mr. Fordhanis plains.'" 

This was not written so early, but it is one of the earliest notices about 
the great Hempstead plains — now the site of Garden City. It is reported 
that in 1643 the Indian sachems had agreed to sell these plains to English- 
men ; of course, when utterly subdued, they would sell ; but the agreement 
has not been seen. It may have been made with Rev. Mr. Fordham and 
his followers before he was employed and settled at Southampton, and 
before he went there.* 

After the fighting and the peace, the Dutch Governor Keift, who was 
fully authorized, issued his letters patent, dated 16th November, 1644, to 
Robert Fordham and six other Englishmen (one of whom he had before 
employed to build the Dutch church in the fort), and unto their heirs and 
successors, or any they should join in association with them, for land (with 
all the havens, harbors, riveis, creeks, woodland, marshes, and all other 
appurtenances thereunto belonging) " upon and about a certain place 
called the Great Plains on Long Island, from the East River to the South 
Sea, and from a certain harbor known by the name of Hempsted Bay, and 
westward as far as Matthew (Martin) Gerretson's Bay ; to begin at the 
head of the said two bays, and to run in direct lines, that they may be the 
same latitude in breadth on the south side as on the north ; and as far 
eastward ; " but with a condition, " /';/ case the patentees and their asso- 
ciates shall procure 100 families to settle down within the limits of five 
years after the date hereof ; " granting full authority to build a town or 
towns, with fortifications, and erect a temple or temples to use and exercise 
the reformed religion which they profess, with the ecclesiastical discipline 
thereunto belonging ; and with full power and authority to erect a body 
politic, or civil combination among themselves, and to nominate magistrates 
to be presented to the Governor for choice and appointment, etc., etc. 
And if the patentees cannot within five years procure 100 families to settle 
on said lands, they shall enjoy, ratum pro rata, land according to the 
number they shall procure. Reserving (as rent), from the expiration of 
ten years, the tenth part of all revenue that shall arise from the ground 

* Two Dutch papers, without official or responsible signatures, set up the story ; one that there 
was an English colony at Hempstead, dependent upon the Dutch, before the hostilities of 1643-4, which 
they sought to protect ; and the other, that in April, 1644, seven Indians were arrested and confined at 
Hemstede, where "an English clergyman, Mr. Fordham, was Governor." (4 Doc. Hist, of N. Y. 15, 105). 
But both of these were paitisan productions, and in many particulars inaccurate. 

8 The Early History of Hempstead, L. I. [Jan., 

manured (or cultivated) with the plow or hoe ; if demanded, before it be 
housed ; gardens and orchards not exceeding one Holland acre excepted. 
(See copy in 2 Thompson's L. I., 4, 5, 6.) 

This very favorable patent implied (as certainly was the fact) that there 
had been no previous Dutch grant for land within those bounds ; nor 
probably were there then any settlers ; if any, a very few. 

All the patentees were Englishmen, and their associates were generally 
English ; and no doubt the patent was particularly intended for an English 
settlement, and was favorably drawn to attract and secure them. 

It embraced a large part of the modern towns of Hempstead and North 
Hempstead, extending across the island north and south where it was 
wide, and in length east and west about 8^- miles. See a map. Martin 
Garretsori's Bay came into dispute afterwards ; i. e., whether it meant 
Manhasset Bay, or was west of Great Neck, and referred to what is now 
called Eittle Neck Bay. No one could claim under this patent that it 
was Hempstead Harbor. (See the Historical Magazine, by S. Dawson, 
Vol. E, Third Series. 368.) 

The towns of Jamaica and Flushing, afterwards patented — the latter in 
1645 — are on the west, embracing now a part of the land originally 
granted to Hempstead ; and the town of Oyster Bay was afterwards 
formed on the east. It is now the eastern town of Queens County. 
Huntington, the western town of Suffolk County, settled eight or ten years 
after this patent, was next east of Oyster Hay ; and, adding Oyster Bay to 
Suffolk, near two-thirds of the island, it will be seen, was east of t/iis 
Hempstead pate/it. The distance from the village of Hempstead (20 miles 
from New York) to the village of Southampton, was about 64 miles in a 
direct line — a distance too often overlooked. There were then no roads, 
and no horses with which to travel them, if there had been roads. 

The first white child born in the town of Hempstead was soon after this 
patent. He was named Caleb, a son of John Carman, born Jan. 9, 1645, 
and he was blind through life. His father and others testified in Court to 
the payments made to Indians for the land. It may be inferred from 
the name, and from other circumstances, that he was one of the spies who 
had examined the country possessed by the heathen, made a good report 
of it, and exhibited (perhaps) some of the native grapes for which it was 

The sheltered little harbors now called Hempstead Harbor and Roslyn, 
at the head of Hempstead Bay ; and Manhasset, at the head of Manhasset 
(formerly Cow) Bay, were probably places early visited by Englishmen 
from Connecticut, or from Massachusetts or Rhode Island, trading with 
the Indians, and exploring the wild country. Indian villages were located 
at pleasant and convenient sites in all such places. Their marks can yet 
be traced. 

It is admitted by all that what was called Cow Neck, which is termi- 
nated at the north by Sands' Point, was embraced in this patent. The 
harbors and creeks on the south side of the island, including Hempstead 
Bay, south, it is probable, were visited by boats from Southampton, and 
Indians also found there. 

In 1647, as appears by the town records, a division or allotment of land 
was first made under this patent (/'. e. ) three years after its date. 

By reading the general history, we can infer much of what must have 
occurred. Delays, of course, arose in gathering together such a band of 

i879-] The Early History of Hempstead, L. I. g 

interested persons, and in exploring the ground. Men could rove and 
explore ; but families requiring houses and furniture, and protection, had 
a slower motion. 

The first " meeting-house," to be used also as a town-house, by report, 
was raised in 1645, ULlt not finished until 1648. It was 24 feet square. 

On 4th July, 1647, a deed was obtained from Indian Sachems, which re- 
ferred to a purchase made in 1643. This latter may have been merely a ver- 
bal sale, or a sale of a small part. But probably it was the treaty of peace. 

In this allotment of 1647, sixty-six proprietors were named ; a large pro- 
portion of whom, if they ever settled there, did not long remain on the land. 
They were of the pioneer class ; chiefly from New England, but some from 
Southampton ; not one from Southold. We cannot tell clearly which of 
them were soldiers with Underhili in 1643. Arranged alphabetically, we 
give such details respecting each as are convenient. 

The Rev. Robert Fordham, though named as a patentee, went to South- 
ampton to preach. In April, 1649, ne ma< J e his formal written agree- 
ment there. It is stated in Thompson's L. I., that he preached at South- 
ampton two or three years before the date of that agreement.* He re- 
mained there until his death in 1674. He is not named among the per- 
sons who had lands allotted them in Hempstead. Doubtless his son John 
took his place as a landholder, and probably John Moore came from South- 
ampton to preach in his place, who was at Hempstead in 165 1, but not 
found at Southampton after 1647.

A few other names have been mentioned, such as John Cornis, (Cornell 
or Cornells), Robert Dean, John Roads, William Thorn, and Richard Wil- 
lets ; but we are not sure of the dates. 

At least ten of these men can be traced from Yorkshire, England. A 
much larger number doubtless came from that large county. So many 
were from Yorkshire, that the settlement was characterized as a Yorkshire 
one. One of their difficulties we cannot readily appreciate, nor could the 
Dutch. At that date the provincial dialect of Yorkshire \vi.i so strange, 
that other Englishmen could not understand their common language ; nor

could they make themselves understood by strangers without great diffi- 
culty. By report they were loyal to the English King and shaip at a 
bargain, but ready to oppose and resent unjust treatment. 

We may notice that (as Marshall says) Yorkshire was chiefly " grass- 
land." Grain (or corn, as they called it) was not much cultivated. They 
designed to and did keep flocks and herds. They had learned how to 
procure them in this country. Hempstead exhibited fine places for 
grazing, over its wide and clear plains, and the salt meadows would pro- 
duce hay in abundance for the winter, without the use of plough or hoe. 
The rich " hollows " and the strips along the foot of the long range of 
hills would afford just the sites required for dwellings, and for gardens and 

Of course, they looked sharply at the terms of their bargain, and espe- 
cially at the last clause, by which, after the first ten years of exposure and 
hardship, they were to pay the Dutch Governor one-tenth of all revenue 
from the land that was ploughed or hoed (for grain or vegetables), except 
that a Dutch acre, equal to near two English acres, was to be allowed to 
each, for a garden and orchard (/. <?., without payment). This was all that 
many of them wanted for cultivation. The D. itch for a long period had 
not much prospect of revenue from land cultivated by plough or hoe. 
Before the meadows were allotted, the settlers united to gather the hay, 
and even erected a " town barn ; " while private barns for the cattle in 
winter were also built near the meadows. 

The village of Hempstead was built on one of the large hollows. A tall 
steeple is almost alone in sight from the open plain, even now. Formal 
agreements at different dates were made for herdsmen to attend and 
watch the common drove of cattle, receive them from the owners half an 
hour after sunrise, and deliver them back half an hour before sundown. 
Butter was to be received in payments — the first notice seen of its use as 
a currency. In 1658 the dues, called tythes or tenths, for the Governor, 
for two years, after some dispute, were adjusted at 100 sheeples (or 
bushels) of wheat, showing some regular farming amid all the disturbances. 
The Dutch officials were doubtless disappointed at the small returns to 
them, and they used rough words and harsh measures. The new Dutch 
Governor, incapable of understanding them or the circumstances, was 
rough and arbitrary. He forbid them to gather crops until his tenths were 
first paid, which, it seems to us, was contrary to the charter. 

In 1650 the truce line was negotiated at Hartford, with much diplomacy 
and parade, between Dutch and English, by their colonial magnates, and 
was expected by many to become permanent. 

By this the new town of Hempstead fell to the Dutch. Its east line, 
the west line of Oyster Bay, was the intended boundary-line between 
English and Dutch. The treaty, locally acquiesced in and long held in 
suspense, was never approved and exchanged abroad. The line never 
became a national and regular boundary-line. 

The war of 1653-4, between the Dutch and English nations, in Crom- 
well's time, came very soon, and nearly broke up the Hempstead settle- 
ment. It was on disputed territory. 

Very few Englishmen remained. They generally went eastward into 
Suffolk County. Some few stopped in Oyster Bay. A larger number 
fixed themselves in the town of Huntington. Others went back to South-

Ten years later, when the English, under Capt. Richard Nicolls, cap- 
tured New York, he encountered on Long Island, as Englishmen, farther 
west than others towards New York, a few of these Yorkshiremen, and he 
called Long Island Yorkshire. 

The Dutch census list of 1673 is the earliest general list of residents we 
have noticed. On this, only eight of the sixty -six persons above named 
can be clearly traced in Hempstead, and about eight who were probably 
descendants of the first. There may have been a few more. Twelve 
names are gone from the census list, or illegible, and several others dis- 
guised by Dutch spelling. 

In the census list of 1698, recertly discovered, only fifteen family names 
were the same as in this allotment of 1647, viz. : Carman, Denton, Ellison, 
Foster, Gildersleeve, Hicks, Ireland. Jackson, Raynor, Sering, Smith, 
Thickstone, Valentine, Williams, and Wood. If Capt. John Seaman 
(sometimes written Symon) was at Hempstead so early as 1647, his name 
would be added. He was not from Yorkshire, and was sent by the others 
on embassies, probably because he, with less difficulty, could make himself

32 Smith Family of New York. [Jan., 


By Thomas Harrison Montgomery. 

Dr. O'Callaghan gives an account of the family of William Smith, the 
historian, in the Historical Magazine for December, 1868, pp. 266-67. 
He names eleven of his father's children, and adds, "there were four other 
girls who married, respectively, in South Carolina, a Mr. Torrance, Mr. 
Rose, Mr. Gardner, and Mr. Gordon." Two of these are buried in the 
graveyard of the Circular Church, Charleston, as is also their brother 
Samuel, who d. August 12, 1 77 1, vet. 26; viz.: Catharine, w. of John 
Gordon, d. December 8, 1776, jet. 33, and Elizabeth B. Hatter Torrans, 
d. December n, 181 7, set. 82. All three are named as son or daughters 
of Hon'ble William Smith, one of the Judges of the Supreme Court of 
New York. (See N. Y. G. and B. Record, vol. 7, 1876, p. 44.) 

Judge Smith came to this country when about eighteen years of age, 
with his widowed mother and two brothers, at the instance, Dr. O'Cal- 
laghan says, of his Uncle William Smith, better known as " Port Royal 
Smith." Of the descent from this latter gentleman I am now able to give 
some particulars. 

William Smith, otherwise " Port Royal Smith," m. Frances, d. of Col. 
William Peartree, in Port Royal, December 12, 1693. Col. Peartree had 
made his residence chiefly at Port Royal, but his property there had suf- 
fered materially by the earthquake of 1692, and he subsequently made his 
home in New York, where he attained great prominence, and was Mayor 
of the city in 1703-6. He had m. March 14, 1675/6, "Anne Tiddeman," 
the d. of Daniel Litschoe, who was Lieutenant of the Burgher Guard, New 
York, in 1656 ; she had been previously m., September 18, 1666, but with- 
out issue, to Thomas Tiddeman ; in the Record of Marriage Licenses 
her name is there recorded " Hannah Litschoe." He d. in 1714, ret. 72 
years. Frances Peartree had accompanied her father in a voyage to Port 
Royal in 1693, and there young Smith — who had been of the party — mar- 
ried her. They had three sons : 

1. Peartree, b. April 9, 1695, d. young. 

2. William. (See below.) 

3. Son, still-born, December 28, 1700. 

William Smith, b. Feb. 26, 1697/8, who m. October 11, 1721, Catha- 
rine Harris, of New York. After his death she became the wife of the 
Reverend Ebenezer Pemberton, D.D., and her death is published in the 
Pennsylvania Gazette, June 13, 1 75 1. Mr. Smith d. in 1723, leaving an 
infant son : 

Hon. William Peartree Smith, 1 who graduated at Yale College in 
1742 (his cousin, the historian, graduated there in i745\ ar) d on May 12, 
1745, In - Mary, the only d. ot Captain William Bryant, of New York. 
Judge Smith was " heir to an ample fortune, and devoted himself to no

was one of "the wicked Triumvirate of New York, S.. L., and Sc." [Smith, W. Livingston, and J. M. 
Scott], described by Rev. Dr. Johnson to his son William Samuel Johnson, under date of April 22, 1768? 
Mr. Bancroft is of the opinion that the S. refers to William Smith, the historian (VI. p. 141, note) ; but Wil- 
liam Peartree Smith was a " Presbyterian lawyer," as was his cousin.

particular professional calling; he, however, attended to a course of juris- 
prudence with an eminent attorney." He was one of the projectors, and 
up to the year 1793 a trustee of the College of New Jersey, "where he 
was noted for his punctual attendance, and offering, as a reason for his 
resignation, the infirmities of his advanced age not admitting of that punc- 
tuality of attendance which he considered indispensably important." With 
his friend, William Livingston, and others, he was one of the writers for the 
Independent Reflector, published in New York, 1752-4, and a frequent con- 
tributor to Parker's American Whig. He removed to Ehzabethtown, 
New Jersey, of which he became Mayor, retaining the office for several 
years, residing in the house previously the seat of Governor Belcher. He 
was a member of the Committee of Safety, and after the Revolution one 
of the Judges of the Court of Common Pleas for the County of Sussex. 
The last few years of his life he spent with his daughter, Mrs. Boudinot, 
in Newark, there dying November 20, 1801, net. 78. His widow d. August 
16, 181 1, set. 92. Her funeral sermon, by the Rev. James Richards, was 
printed, and is largely quoted from by Alden. She was an eminent 
Christian, and the influence of her loveliness and purity of character was 
felt with great power in a large family and a wide group of friends. {Alden, 
i. 81-94, 204; Whitehead's Contributions to E. Jersey History, p. 146; 
Hatfield's Elizabeth, pp. 410, 411, 412, 418, 515, 533, 553, 630.) Of their 
numerous children but two left any families. These were : 

1. Ei.iza, b. July 17, 1746, d. September 10, 1747. 

2. Ebenezer, b. February 20, 1747, d. July 12, 1750.

4. Catharine, b. December 16, 1749, m - October 14, 1778, Hon. 
Elisha Boudinot (who was b. January 13, 1749), and d. August 
30, 1797, set. 47 years. 1 Their children were : 

a. Anna Maria, b. November 26, 1780, the eldest grandchild, 
who had been particularly dear to the grandmother ; and it 
was Mrs. Smith's last prayer that she might soon be united 
to her in a better world, and at the same time expressed her 
firm belief that they should not long be separated one 
from the other. It is remarkable that this granddaughter, 
though at the time in her usual good health, died suddenly a 
fortnight after Mrs. Smith's death, viz. : August 29, 181 1.

Dr. William Put Smith was b. June 7, 1760; became M.D. ; was 
Professor of Materia Medica in Columbia College in 1792, and d. in 1796, 
after a brief but eminent professional career. He was known to the 
literary world as the author of the " Universalist," comprised in seven let- 
ters, to Amvntor, and "Observations on Conventions," made at a Tam- 
manial debate. Dr. Francis, in his "Old New York," mentions "William 
Pitt Smith, a doctor of physic, and a professor of materia medica in 
Columbia College, who had published his letters of Amyutor long prior 
to the time of the public discourses of Mitchell and Palmer" on Univer- 
salism. Dr Smith wrote a number of essays reprobating the slavery of 
negroes, and many other occasional pieces for the periodical works of his 
day. His poetical productions were numerous, and his talent for public 
speaking was distinguished. In the New York Magazi?ie for February, 
1796, occurs the following obituary of him : "Dr. William Pitt Smith was 
the son of William Smith, Esquire, now of New Jersey, and under excel- 
lent parental guidance, gave very early in life evidences of promising 
abilities. He served during the latter part of the war in the Hospital De- 
partment of the Continental Army, and at the return of peace commenced 
the practice of physic in this city. On the death of the late Dr. Treat he 
was appointed Health Officer of this port, and was one of the repre- 
sentatives of this city in the Legislature of the State. The cause of his 
death (inflammation of the lungs) has been attributed to his having at- 
tended in his place, in the House, on the morning of January — , expect- 
ing the production of the Abolition bill (for which he was a strenuous ad- 
vocate), after having been engaged in the severe exercise of his professional 
duties, and been exposed to the then inclemency of the weather. As a 
politician, Dr. Smith had many friends. He was an able speaker, and 
was listened to with attention. His talents for writing were also gen- 
erally exercised with success. As a companion in private life, his loss 
will be regretted by a very numerous acquaintance, and by his family and 
particular friends will be most severely felt. This city has never perhaps 
suffered so heavy a loss in respect to professional and useful characters in 
the same space of time as in the quickly succeeding deaths of Dis. Samuel 
Nicoll ami Smith." 

Dr. Smith m. in June, 1781, Mary Ilolliday, of the Van Ness family,

Varleth — Varlet — Varleet — Verlet — Verletii. 

5 iv. Catharina Varleth,' 2 probably the third daughter of Casper 
Varleth J and his wife Judith, was born in Amsterdam, and married, in New 
Amsterdam, August /?), 1657, Francoys De Bruyn (Bruyn, Browne). 
It has been supposed by some that this Francoys De Bruyn was identical 
with Francis Browne, or Frans Bruyn, a soldier at Curacoa in 1643, and 
living, in 1647, in New Amsterdam ; but they were doubtless different per- 
sons, as the latter was from Yorkshire, while the former was a native of 
Amsterdam. Francoys or Francis De Bruyn was a member of the church in 
New Amsterdam prior to 1660. He removed to New Utrecht, L. I., as early 
as 1663 — was a Schepen there in 1663-1664, and in August, 1673, was 
appointed Secretary of the Five Dutch Towns on Long Island, and 
Auctioneer, vice Corteljou, in January following, which is the last notice 
found of him. His 'wife, Catharina Varleth, probably deceased before 
September, 1662 — the date of the death of her father. They had the fol- 
lowing-named children baptized in the Church at New Amsterdam, viz. : 

1. Casparus De Bruyn, bap. Sept. 14, 1659. The sponsors 

at his baptism were Nicholaes Verleth and Otto Bagelaer. 

2. Agatha De Bruyn, bap. Jan. 26, 166 r. The sponsors at her 

baptism were Johannes De Peyster and Anna Verleth. 

3. Jacob De Bruyn, bap. March 5, 1662. The sponsors at his 

baptism were Anthony De Mill and Anna Stiiyvesants. • 

6 v. Judith Varleth, 2 born in Amsterdam, was probably the youngest 
daughter of Casper 1 and Judith Varleth. She resided for some time with 
her parents at Hartford, Conn., and in 1662 was imprisoned there on a 
" pretended accusation of witchery." In that year Ann, daughter of John 
Cole, "who lived near a Dutch family" at Hartford, "was seized in a 

-26 Contributions to the History of the [Jan., 

strange manner with Fits wherein her Tongue was improved by a Demon," 
&c., who confounded her language, so that she "made Uterances in 
Dutch of which Language she knew Nothing."* It was probably in this 
case the accusation of witchery was made against Judith Varleth. Through 
the interposition of Gov. Stuyvesant she escaped her peril, f and it is re- 
lated " that as soon as the suspected Witches were executed or fled Mrs. 
Cole was restored to Health." In happier hour, says the not always pro- 
saic Mr. Savage, Judith Varleth's power of fascination was sufficient to en- 
sure her marriage with Nicholas Bayard, one of the patrician families of 
the neighboring province of New York. She married May 23, 1666, in 
New York, Nicholas, son of Samuel Bayard and Anna Stuyvesant, born at 
Alplien, in Holland, who accompanied his widowed mother and uncle, 
Gov. Petrus Stuyvesant, to New Netherland in May, 1647. In 1654 he 
was Cierk in the Secretary's office at New Amsterdam, and possessing, 
with other scholarly attainments, a knowledge of the English language, was 
appointed, July 1, 1657, English Secretary, and August 16, 1663, was made 
Commissary of Imports and Exports, vice Jacob Sam, who had returned to 
Holland. In August, 1673, he was commissioned Secretary of the Prov- 
ince, and, on the 20th of September following, Receiver-General. He was 
Mayor of New York in 1685, and for many years a prominent member of 
the Legislative Council. As the "Dutch head of the English party," he 
was among the most active of Leisler's opponents, and was imprisoned in 
the Fort by Leisler's orders for more than a year. Upon the arrival of 
Gov. Sloughter in New York, he was foremost in urging Leisler's execution. 
He was tried and condemned to death for high treason in March, 1701 ; 
but this judgment was reversed by Act of the Legislature during Lord 
Cornbury's administration. While ostensibly a brewer by occupation, he 
was from early youth an office-holder, and essentially a politician, with all 
the name implies. He died in 1709, leaving a large estate to his widow 
and only son Samuel; and it may be regarded as a fitting commentary 
upon the slackness of genealogical and biographical investigations in New 
York, that among his numerous and respectable descendants, male and fe- 
male, the biography of a man who filled so large a space in the early his- 
tory of the Colony remains unwritten. His will is dated May 9, 1707, in 
which he styles himself " of the city of New York Merchant," and names 
only his wife Judy, and son Samuel, whom he makes executors of his 

Nicholas and Judith (Varleth) Bayard had issue :

garita Van Cortlandt, dau. of Stephanus and Geertruyd (Schuyler) 
Van Cortlandt ; she was bap. July 29, 1674. He was a merchant in New 
York, and made his will April 10, 1745, probated May 1, 1746, in which 
he mentions his two grandchildren, Nicholas and Margaret Van Dam, 
children of his deceased dau. Judith Van Dam ; his dau. Gertrude, wife of 
Peter Kemble ; dau. Margaret, wife of James Van Home ; dau. Ann, and 
his three sons, Stephen, Nicholas, and Samuel, whom he appoints execu-

The following list gives all, or nearly all, the aliases of males that appear in the Bap- 
tismal Records of the Reformed Dutch Church in the city of New York, from 1639 to 
1756. The dates at the end of each name denote the years in which the baptism of 
the children of the person mentioned is recorded, and in which his two first names, 
or his first and surname, are given. Considerable care has been taken in making up 
the list, and it is offered as a help to those engaged in tracing the pedigrees of the 
early Dutch Families of New York.

* Peter Kemhle was a member of the Council in New Jersey, and in 1732-5, probably longer, was a 
resident of New Brunswick. His eldest son, Samuel, according to the statement in Stevens' Chamber 
of Commerce Records, p. 139, was born at New Brunswick, though it appears by the records he was bap. 
in New York. His dau. Margaret, born about 1734-5, married Dec. 8, 1758, General Gage, who suc- 
ceeded, in 1763, Genl. Amherst, as Commander-in-Chief of the British forces in America.

1879] Notes and Queries. 47 


Nicoll. — Margarita Nicoll (named Margaret in her father's will) was the daughter of 
Dr. John Nicoll, an eminent physician of New York, born in Scotland, died in this city 
in 174^, in the sixty-fourth year of his age. He left besides this daughter a son John, 
" of Winsor." 

Bayard. — Rachel, widow of Peti'us Bayard, who married secondly Henry Wileman, 
had by this second marriage a daughter Elizabeth, mentioned in the will of her son, Peter 
Bayard (1738), as his " sister Elizabeth Wileman." The will does not name the daughter 
Rachel, mentioned by Mr. Purple (ante ix. p. 156): perhaps she died young. Of the 
other sons of Petrus Bayard, Peter's will names only John and Samuel, leaving room for 
the inference that Ilendrikus had died young. C. vv. B. 

Van Hook —A correspondent asks for information regarding this ancient New York 
family, and furnishes the following items:—" 1640 Lawrence Van Hook (a judge in New 

York) married . 1670. A son married France>ca . 1703. Erancesca Van 

Hook. New York, married Dr. David Edmeston, of Chester, Penn." 

I append the few particulars I have gathered for my correspondent, hoping that other 
readers of the Record may be able to direct him to fuller sources :

" Lawrence Vanhook " died soon after July 14, 1724, .when he bequeathed a tract of land 
in Westchester County, N. Y., to his two sons, Aaron and Henry, both of Freehold, 
Monmouth County, N. J. Aaron's wife, Catharine, and Henry's wife, Deborah, are 
named in the deed, which recites the above facts, and is dated April 5, 1726. (Register's

The Le Roys of New York. — (The following brief account of this old and dis- 
tinguished family was received a few years since from the pen of Henry W. Le Roy, Esq., 
of Albany, by the undersigned, who now commits it to the Record: — William J J all). 

" Of late our family traditions have been somewhat forgotten, and facts that could 
easily have been had twenty years since are now entirely lost. Being Huguenots, our 

a 8 Notes and Queries. [Jan., 

family were compelled to leave France on tlie revocation of the Edict of Nantz. They 
took refuge in Holland, I believe, at the Hague. At least from there Daniel Le Roy 
sent his son Jacob to New York. In what year I never could find out, but from the 
family bible I see that in 1753 ' ie married Cornelia Rutgers, and in 1766, Catha- 
rine, her sister. From these marriages were several children, and the five that married 
went into the Corneills, Livingston, McEvers, Cuyler, and Banyan families. I am now 
of the fifth and last generation living in this country. The family have always lived in 
the State, and generally in or near New York. Herman,* the son of Jacob, founded the 
house of Le Roy, Bayard & McEvers, for many years chief in the mercantile world. He 
was a large real estate owner in Genessee County, N. Y., and after him the town of Le 
Roy was named. 

" I cannot now give any more facts, but in time I hope to have authentic information 
of our family while in Holland." w. H. 

Rogers of Saint John and New York. — What is the ancestry of the brothers 
Fitch, Henry, Moses, and Nehemiah Rogers, who were active merchants in this city 
towards the close of the Revolution, but went to New Brunswick when the British evacu- 
ated the city, and were among the founders of the loyalist city Saint John ? 

Fitch Rogers was the first Warden of Trinity Church, Saint John ; he shortly returned 
to the States, and settled in Stamford, Connecticut, and we find him subsequently in 
New York. 

Henry Rogers returned with his brothers. His d. is the widow of the late Rev. Smith 
Pyne, D.D. 

Moses Rogers m. Sarah, d. of Benjamin Woolsey. He was one of the founders of 
Grace Church, N. Y., and the mural tablet to his memory is on the north wall, near the 
entrance of the present Church. 

Nehemiah Rogers was one of the early Mayors of the city of Saint John, and a vestry- 
man of the new Trinity there. He and Fitch were among the grantees of Saint John 
in 17S3, and he had been a lieutenant in some Loyalist corps. (Sabine Loyalists, 1864, 
Vol. II., p. 572.) He m. his cousin, the d. of James Bell, then of Fredericton, N. B., 
the father of Captain Isaac Bell, of this city, and appears to have returned to New York 
about 1792, and founded the house of Rogers & Aspinwall. He d. in 1849, aged 95. 
His widow d. in 1S63, aged 93 years. 

Esther Rogers, their only sister, m. Archibald Grade, who was as distinguished in 
mercantile life as were his brothers-in-law. He has numerous descendants. 

" The Old Merchants of New York City," 2d series, and local histories of Saint John, 
furnish us these meagre particulars, leading to a desire for more, not only of the ancestry, 
but of the descendants of such a notable family group. T. H. M. 

Akerly Family. — The following epitaphs were copied August, 1S78, in the burying 
ground of the Methodist Church, at Lake Grove, town of Brookhaven, L. I. The 
stones were removed from the old Akerly farm, near Mooney Pond, to their present 
position :

Ponsonby — May I ask if any of your readers or correspondents can, in reply to this, 
state the various collateral marriages contracted, between the years 1700 and 1800, by 
the members of the Ponsonby family upon the female side ? This family is at present 
represented by several branches, viz., those of the Sixth Earl of Bessborough (Lord Pon- 
sonby) of Bessborough House Near Pilltown, County Kilkenny (as also in England), and 
those of the descendants of William Ponsonby-Barker, Esq., of Kilcooly Abbey, County 
Tipperary, Ireland, and Lord De Mauley, Down Ampney Park, near Cirencester. 

If the list of marriages cannot be given in full, I should especially wish to know if Lady 
Sarah Ponsonby married one Joseph Bigger, Esq., between the dates above given. 


co Notes and Queries. [ Jan., 

Van Alstyn. — Information is desired of this family. Nothing that I can learn has 
been written of them, save by Prof. Pearson in his '* First Settlers of Albany County," 
where we find the marriages of the first generation in America, and the baptismal record 
of their children, and a few of their grandchildren. The name was earliest written Van 
Aelsteyn or Aalsteyn. 

There were five of that name — doubtless brothers — living at Kinderhook, N. Y. , and 
vicinity, previous to the year 1700 : 

1st. Abraham Janse, born about 1660; married, 1st, , 2d, Maritie Van 

Deusen, Jan. 29, 1694. The names of his children (fifteen), as of those of his brothers, 
are given in "Pearson's Albany Settlers," page 113. 2d. Isaac Janse, m., 1st, Maritie 
Vosburgh, Oct. 20, 16 ^9, 2d, Jannetie Van Valkenburgh, Feb. 20, 1698. They had 
eight children. 3d. Lambert Janse, m. Jannetie Mingaal. Had two children. 4th. 
Cornells Martense, married Maritie Vandenbergh, May 15, 1703. Had eight children. 
5U1. Martin Janse, married, 1st, Jannetie Cornelise (Van Schauck), 2d, Cornelise Van- 
denbergh, Nov. 10, 1705. The last two married sisters. They were daughters of 
Cornells Gysbert Vandenbergh and Cornelise Wynantse Van der Poel, of Rensselaer- 
wyck. He mentions them in his will, dated March 3d, 17 14. 

The following were the children of Martin Janse Van Alstyn, and date of their bap- 
tism : 

Isaac, June 20, 1703; Martinus, Sept. 22, 1706; Cornells, Sept. 26, 1708; Johan- 
nes, March II, 1711; Cornelise, Sept. 20, 1713 ; Gysbert, Dec. 3, 1716; Jannetie, 
Aug. 22, 17 19 ; Gosen, April 8, 1722; Abraham, Oct. 11, 1724. 

His descendants intermarried with those of the writer's ancestor, Johannes Rueff (who 
established himself as an Indian trader at Fort Stanvvix, N. Y., in the year 1760). The 
record which follows is as complete as possible, and is communicated with the hope that 
further information from other branches of the family may be obtained. 

Martin Janse removed with his family from Rensselaerwyck to Canajoharie, N. Y., in 
the year 1730, where he soon after erected a stone residence yet standing. As stated in 
French's Gazetteer of New York, it was palisaded and used as a fort during a part of the 
revolution, under the name Fort Rensselaer. 

He made his will .Sept. 15, 1763, in which he mentions his sons Cornells, Johannes, 
Gysbert, and Gosen, and daughter Jannetie. Gosen inherited the homestead and farm 
attached, Cornells land on the Hudson River at Half Moon. His children married as 
follows: Cornells, Tenntie Fort, March 19, 1738; Jannetie, Johannes Pruyn ; Johan- 
nes, Lena Scharp, Sept. 30, 176 ^ ; children, Isaac, Jannetie, and Barbara; Gysbert, 
Annatie He Ridders, Jan. 11, 1744; Gosen, Elizabeth Schermerhorn, Jan. 5, 1749. 
Cornells made his will July 12, 1787, in which he bequeathed property to his sons 
Martin, Cornels, and Daniel, and daughter Cornelise ; to Daniel the Hudson River 
property at Half Moon. Gysbert made his will Aug. 15, 17S0, in which he remembers 
his sons Nicholas, Johannes, and Martinus, and daughters Rachiel, Jannetie, and 

Gosen willed the old residence and farm to his son Philip, and property below Cana- 
joharie to Martin G. 

Philip, son of Gosen, b. 1752, m., 1st, Maritie Davis, of Johnstown, N. Y., June 7, 
1785. His daughter Neeltie was b. Sept. 13, 1787; Jannetie, Aug. 4, 1790. He m., 
2d, Barbara, second daughter of Johannes Rueff, of Fort Stanwix, March 4, 1794. He 
died in the year 1805. 

Neeltie m. Martin Rueff, fourth son of Johannes, Sept. 8, 1804. She died June 8, 

Jannetie m. Scott Quackenbos, March 11, 1S12. She died in the year 1838. 

Martin G. Van Alstyn, b. 1754, m. Margaret Ann , April 3, 1780. Had Maritie 

and Ann. He died in 1830. 

Grandchildren of Philip are still living. F. A. R.

[879-] Notes on Books. 5 1 


Centennial History of Somerset County. By Abraham Messler, D.D., Somer- 
ville. C. M. Jameson, Publisher, 1878. Including Appendix, pp. 198. 

This book contains an interesting and condensed sketch of a portion of New Jersey, 
many of whose early settlers were emigrants from among the descendants of the Nether- 
landers who located on Long Island. It contains much valuable historical and genealogi- 
cal information, not only of the early settlers and their descendants, but also of the opera- 
tions of the American and British armies in the war of the Revolution, by an author, who 
from his many years' service, as the pastor of the Dutch Reformed Church of Somerville, 
has had an opportunity of gathering more local information than any of his contemporaries. 
The book will be highly prized by those who desire to obtain local knowledge, but the 
printing of so valuable a work on poor paper is to be regretted. On a critical exan ina- 
lion the writer has discovered a few errors, or what he views as errors (and what work is 
free from them), which he will endeavor to correct. 

The first which he would point out is the setting forth on the 15th page that "the 
Tunisons, Cornelius and John, came here from Fort Orange, now Albany, and were ori- 
ginally from the vicinity of Utrecht in Holland." T unison is not a proper surname, but 
simply signifies son of Tunis. Pearson's genealogies of the first settlers of Albany enumer- 
ates numerous Teunises, or sons of Teunis, but of his Cornelius and John Teun^es none 
accord with the Tunisons of Somerset county. Taking the records of the Kings county. 
New York, and Raritan churches, it may fairly be inferred that both Cornelius and John 
were sons of Teunis Nyssen or Uenyse, whose son "Jan" (or John) was bap Apr 1 12, 
1654, in New Amsterdam, now New York, m d Nov. 16, 1679, as per Brooklyn church 
records, Cateline (or Catharine) Teunise Bogaert, residing at the " Wale-bocht," and 
had issue: — Femmetje, bap. Augt. 8, 16S0, at Midwoud (Flatbush) ; Tetinis, bap. July 
16, 1682, at Amersfoort (Flatlands) ; Sarah, bap. Feb. 1, 1685. at Breuckelen ; and 
Abraham, bap. Sept. 19, 1699, in the Raritan church, "Cornells Theunissen" and wife 
being witnesses. 

''Cornelis," son of Teunis Nyssen (a minor in 1667), m d I st Augt. 22, 16S7, at Mid- 
woud, Neeltje Teunise Bogaert, settling near Somerville about 16S3, and suppose m d 2' 1 

Rebeka , and had issue, all bap. in the Raritan church except Teunis; — Tennis 

bap. Apr 1 22' 1 , 1688, in New York ; Abraham, bap March 8, 1699, Michael Hansen 
(Bergen', brother-in-law of said Cornelis, and Femmetje (Uenyse) being witnesses; Abra- 
ham, bap. Sep. 26, 1700, Jan Theunissen wit. ; Jan, bap. Apr 1 20, 1704; Sara, bap. 
Ap 1 3, 1706; and Denyse, bap. Apr 1 28, 170S, Teunis and Saertjen Middlesuaert wit. 
Van Middleswaert may mean from Midwoud or Middlewout, one of the names the present 
Flatbush on Long Island at that period was known by, which would account for the ori- 
gin of others of the same name among the early settlers of Somerset county. In addition 
to the above, as additional evidence bearing on the inference of Jan and Cornelis Theu- 
nissen being sons of Teunis Nyssen (Denyse), and both having married daughters of Teu- 
nis Gysbertse Bogaert, it appears by the records of the Raritan church that Jan' 20, 1706, 
Jan Theunisse and Katlyn (Catharine) his wife were wit. at bap. of Joris. son of Jacob 
and Geertien Rapalje, Jacob being a cousin of his wife; Apr 1 25, 171 1, Jan Theunisse 
was wit. at bap. of Johannes, son of Cornelis Bogaert (supposed to be a brother of his 
wife); Apr 1 30, 1712, Jan Theunissen was wit. at bap. of Sara, daughter of t he above 
mentioned Jacob Rapalje; ana Sep. 16, 1710, Cornelis Theunissen was wit. at bap. of 
Nehien, daughter of said Jacob Rapalje. It was customary in those days for relatives to 
act as witnesses and Godparents of children at baptisms. 

The statement that the Veghte (Cortelyoii) house of Gowanus was built in 1639 with 
a tile roof is also erroneous. The iron figures of 1699 on the gable of the house indicated 
its erection in that year, and the writer who was born in the vicinity, whose recollection 
of the house goes back more than 60 years, found it in his youth covered with shingles, 
and has not seen any account previous to this, nor heard any of the oldest inhabitants 
assert that the house was ever covered with tiles. The roof was sleep, and tiles being 
very durable would most probably have remained on it until its destruction, the same as 
on the De Sille house in New Utrecht. At the present time the roof is off, the building 
nearly all tumbled down, and this old and interesting relic of the early settlers of the city 
of Brooklyn, which ought to have been preserved, will soon disappear. 

The common ancestor of the Veghte family of Long Island and New Jersey is Klaes 
Arents Vecht, as written by himself, who immigrated from the Netherlands in April, 1660,

in the ship " Bontekoe," with wife, three children, and a boy, and took the oath of alle- 
giance in Brooklyn in 1687. The " Rynier Vechten," who took the oath of allegiance 
in Flatbiish at the same date, from the entry on the record appears to have immigrated in 
the same vessel, was probably one of the children who came over with Klaes Arents, and 
not his brother, as asserted in the book, there being no emigrant named " Hendrick 
Veghten " on the passenger list of the "Bontekoe." The Van Veghtens who settled at 
Albany and on the Hudson River about 1638, are of a different stock. 

The first Vroom who settled on the Raritan was Hendrick Corson, son of Cornelis 
Pietersen and Tryntje Hendricks, bap. Nov. 30, 1653, in New Amsterdam, and not 
"Court Vroom," as set forth in the book. Corse or Corsen was used as an abbreviation 
of Cornelis, anil signifies son of Cornelis. He m d Josina, daughter of Pieter Van Nest 
and Judith Rapalje of Brooklyn, several of whose sons also settled on the Raritan. 

The battle of Long Island was fought on the 27 th of Augt., 1776, and not on the 20 ,, \ 
and Fort Washington was taken on the 16 th of Nov., and not on the io lh , as set forth 
on pages 69 and 70 of the book. T. G. B.

Pierson Genealogical Records, collected and compiled by Lizzie B. Pierson, of 
Andover, Mass. pp. 104. Albany, N. Y. : Joel Munsell, Printer, 1878. 

The Editor's Preface, signed Geo. R. Howell, informs us that Miss Pierson, being 
unable to oversee the issuing of her work from the press, entrusted that duty to him with 
the liberal privileges of Editor, which have been sparingly exercised ; but he assures us 
the author has been indefatigable and faithful. He is so well known from his South- 
hampton works that we need add nothing more. The work is condensed and terse, like 
those of the editor. It contains a great deal of information and rests very little upon 
tradition. Perhaps James, p. 78, is an exception, and may prove the propriety of the 
rule. If it should turn out that he is the same person as James No. 18, p. 13, ten years 
younger than his brother John (not remembered by young James when living with his 
father, because John was then away at school or college), we will say Q. E. D. We infer 
that his history came from the family of his son Moses, in Vermont, corresponding, as 
it does, in accuracy with some others which rest upon aged recollection of youthful im- 
pressions. If this guess calls attention to the defective pedigree of the first President of 
Yale, and to the revolutionary incidents recited, and shall secure fuller accounts, it will 
answer its purpose. Did the Rector have a second wife about 1679, and after 1680 eight 
children in nine years? If so the history of one wife and of six children is missing. All 
the Piersons should have the book, and improve it if they can.

This is a comely volume, well printed on good paper, and filled with "facts and inci- 
dents of nearly two hundred years," appertaining mainly to the history of St. Mary's 
Church in Burlington, N. J. The original sources drawn from are the " Parochial Regis- 
ter," commencing in 1702 ; " Minutes of the Vestry," " Collections of the Protestant 
Episcopal Historical Society," printed in 185 1 ; Letters and documents from Lambeth, 
Fulham, and Society for the Propagation of the Gospel in Foreign Parts, procured by 
the late Rev. Dr. Francis L. Hawks ; Extracts from Wills from the Originals in the office 
of the Secretary of State at Trenton, N. J., etc. Many of the historical data furnished 
in this interesting volume have never before been published, and we wish that our space 
permitted of extracts being made for the service of our readers. But as it is limited, it must 
suffice to call the attention of our readers to this work and bespeak for it a careful perusal. 



Vol. X. NEW YORK, APRIL, 1879. No. 2. 

( With Portrait.) 

By William Allen Butler. 

In attempting a sketch of the life and literary labors of our late asso- 
ciate, Evert A. Duyckinck, I dismiss, at the outset, any misgivings as to 
the degree of general interest attaching to a career whose daily course 
came so little under public observation, and whose chosen aims were so 
far removed from the ordinary pursuits of men. At first thought the life 
of a scholar and man of letters, passed chiefly among his books, and marked 
by an avoidance of society and a withdrawal from the world, presents few 
points of attraction, and may seem to furnish little material for even a brief 
biographical notice. But the friend whose memory we honor was not a 
mere recluse, living a selfish life of intellectual ease. He was a faithful 
and life-long worker. If his field of labor was retired, it was no less the 
scene of constant and patient toil; if he preferred the quiet of his books 
and the companionship of their authors to the -stir of active life and the 
social intercourse of the world, it was not to hide or bury the talents com- 
mitted to his keeping. In his self-chosen seclusion he was always con- 
tributing his measure of honest work to that true commonwealth of letters 
in which there is no conflict between the capital of intellectual gifts or ac- 
quirements and the labor of brain and hand, but where all are co-workers, 
each in his own sphere, for the advancement of the best thought and in- 
telligence of the race. 

Evert Augustus Duyckinck, the son of Evert Duyckinck and Harriet 
June, was born in the city of New York, November 23, 1816. His family 
name was conspicuous in the list of the early Dutch settlers in this part of 
the country. In Hazard's collection of State papers there is a notice of 
the depredations of the Connecticut Colonists upon the lands of the New 
Amsterdam people, under the rule of the West India Company, in which it 
is said that " they of Hartford have beaten the servants of the high and 
mighty, the honored companie from their lands, with sticks and plow staves, 
and among the rest struck Ever Duckings (Evert Duyckinck) a hole in his 
head with a stick, so that the bloode ran dovvne very strongly downe upon 
his body." 

Evert Duyckinck, the second of the name, who married Elsie Meyer,

ca Evert A. Duyckinck — A Memorial Sketch. [April, 

February 3, 1704, settled, during the later Colonial times, at Raritan Land- 
ing, New Jersey. Of the nine children of Evert and Elsie Duyckinck, the 
third, Christopher, who married Catharine Gautier, was actively engaged 
during the Revolutionary War in aid of the struggle for independence. 
His son, Evert, the oldest of seven children, and the father of the subject 
of the present memorial sketch, became a resident of the city of New York 
about the beginning of the present century, and engaged in the business 
of a publisher and bookseller. His house, No. 9 Old Slip, and his store 
in Water Street, adjoining it in the rear, were well known to the residents 
of old New York, by whom he was held in high esteem during his thirty or 
forty years of active business life. He gave to Messrs. J. & J. Harper the 
first order they ever received for book printing. It was for two thousand 
copies of Seneca's Morals, a large edition for the time, and, considering the 
subject, perhaps larger than could be disposed of in these degenerate days 
by any of our modern publishers with all their increased appliances of 

A pleasant allusion to the veteran publisher was made in a letter of 
Diedrich Knickerbocker, published in the American Citizen, New York, 
January 23, 18 10, not included in any collection of Washington Irving's 
Works, but reprinted in Mr. Stevens' Magazine of American History, for 
May, 1878. In this letter the veracious historian of New York expresses 
his regret that his work had not been published by his much esteemed 
friend, Mr. Evert Duyckinck, " a lineal descendant from one of the an- 
cient heroes of the Manhattoes, whose grandfather and my grandfather 
were just like brothers." At the time of his retirement from business, Mr. 
Evert Duyckinck was the oldest publisher in New York. He died in the 
year 1833. It appears from a passing allusion in a note-book of his son 
Evert, that a love of domestic retirement and quiet was characteristic of 
the family. Speaking of the luxury of a wood fire in Paris, he says : " A 
wood fire will always be associated by me with home and my best early 
days by my father's and mother's fireside. My father had a Dutch tena- 
city to domestic habits that no friction of travel will rub out from me 
either. In his store in Water Street he kept heaped -up fires — a back log 
m the morning like a hogshead. In the ashes after dinner a few Carolina 
potatoes were commonly buried, where they lay heaped-up like the tombs 
of Ajax and Patroclus. In the evening, over the embers, my uncle Long 
always came to talk over the business of the day, while I kept close to the 
corner, rarely venturing to go among the dark shades at the further end of 
the room." 

The only children of Evert Duyckinck, the publisher, attaining majority, 
were Evert Augustus and George Long, the latter named after the uncle just 
mentioned. The two boys, between whose ages there was a difference of 
seven years, grew up in that daily contact with books and literary associa- 
tions which, to a mind naturally intelligent, is often the most potent influ- 
ence in determining the pursuits of after years. Evert was graduated from 
Columbia College in the class of 1835, at the age of nineteen, and after- 
ward spent two years in the law office of the eminent jurist and practi- 
tioner, John Anthon. He was admitted to the bar in 1837, but the pro- 
fession of the law presented no attractions to his retiring and contempla- 
tive nature. His strong bias for literary studies and pursuits, conspicuous 
during his college course, had been shown in his contributions to leading 
literary journals published in New York. For Park Benjamin's American

Monthly he wrote some papers, under the title, " Felix Merry's Fireside 
Essays," which one of his classmates, a competent critic, characterizes as 
" a charming series of graceful, gossiping lucubrations." He soon after- 
ward became a regular contributor to the New York Revietu and Quar- 
terly Cluirch Journal, for which he wrote reviews of the Poetical Works of 
Crabbe, Mrs. Hemans, George Herbert, and Goldsmith, besides many 
other critical pieces. His love of old English literature, the department 
of study in which he always delighted, was exhibited in an article in one 
of the earlier numbers of the same review, in which his name is associ- 
ated as a contributor with those of Chancellor Kent and Bishop Mcll- 

A little brochure, called the " Literary," had been issued as early as 
1836, for which young Duyckinck, still in his minority, furnished an essay 
on the same favorite subject, "The Old Prose Writers," a most graceful 
paper, showing a thorough insight of the theme he treated, and marked by 
the taste and discrimination which always guided his pen, and the eleva- 
tion of thought which was his constant source of inspiration. 

In the autumn of 1838 he left home for a year of travel in Europe, which 
he made not merely an opportunity for gratifying the curiosity of an Ameri- 
can in Europe, but largely a means of verifying by his own observa- 
tion what he had learned in his studies of the life, manners, and associa- 
tions of the Old World. " I desire," he says, in the opening pages of the 
diary from which a quotation has already been given, '' to traverse Europe 
and look upon it with the eye of the Past, as Howell, or Evelyn, or Wot- 
ton travelled in the seventeenth century. I have come to see a various 
drama acted on a large scene, nor will I be disappointed for want of faith 
in the ordinary delusions of the theatre." He was most fortunate in 
forming the acquaintance, in Paris, of Mr. Harmanus Bleeker, of Albany, 
an eminent lawyer and scholar, a descendant, like himself, of a good Hol- 
land stock, who was about to visit the land of his ancestors under the most 
favorable auspices. He invited Mr. Duyckinck, and his friend and fellow 
traveller, James W. Beekman, to accompany him, an invitation gladly ac- 
cepted. Mr. Bleeker was versed in the Dutch language and literature, 
and was well known in Holland, where soon afterward, during the Presi- 
dency of Mr. Van Buren, he represented the United States as Minister 
at the Hague. "As honest as Harmanus Bleeker," was a phrase of John 
Randolph which conveyed a sincere tribute to one of whom Duyckinck 
says, "he follows truth fearlessly in everything." He proved a most con- 
genial and instructive companion in travel, delighting his juniors with his 
good sense and the results of his long experience at the bar and in public 
life, and with his fund of anecdotes, of which Duyckinck testifies, " they 
are always good, and always new and rare, and many an hour of travel 
have they beguiled on the long, straight roads of the Low Countries." 

The tourists entered Holland at Grootzundert, a post on the frontier of 
Belgium. The appearance in their passports of such honest Dutch names 
as " Bleeker," " Duyckinck," and " Beekman," aided, no doubt, by the in- 
genuous countenances of their proprietors, elicited a courteous waiver of 
custom-house scrutiny, and the freedom of the Netherlands seems to have 
been conferred upon them without any troublesome formalities. A private 
audience of the King, accorded to Mr. Bleeker, as the President of the 
Saint Nicholas Society of the ancient city of Albany, and a ball at the 
palace of the Prince of Orange, were part of a round of entertainments and

hospitalities from which Duyckinck was disposed, under the impulse of his 
retiring and independent disposition, to draw back. " I began," he says, 
to question my position, when I found Mr. Bleeker received by the great 
lords of the State, and myself included in the invitations. I dislike to re- 
ceive any attention to which I have not some right in myself. It sacri- 
fices independence. But I was fairly invited by Mr. Bleeker to accom- 
pany him as a fellow-traveller. He draws these attentions upon us. For 
myself, I am a looker-on in Vienna." 

Few lookers-on ever brought to the quiet task of observation more good 
sense or a keener appreciation of whatever was worthy of note. His rare 
opportunities for seeing life in Holland at its best were well improved. 
His journal, in the neat, firm handwriting, expressive of his exact method 
and nicety of taste, is a series of sketches drawn from nature and society 
with a vivid charm of expression in their descriptions of scenes and inci- 
dents of travel, which reminds one of the easy grace of Irving, and, in 
their pictures of social life and personal traits, of the quick vivacity of 
Horace Walpole. In company with Mr. Bleeker, Duyckinck made a 
thorough exploration of all the places of interest to a literary man and a 
Hollander by descent. In a book of heraldry, at the house of Baron 
Westreenan, a noted antiquarian, they found their respective coats of arms, 
and at the hospitable tables of the burghers of Amsterdam and the Hague 
a fraternal welcome. There, as the journal attests, " eternal amity was 
sworn between Holland and America, and if," says Duyckinck, " the ocean 
that separates us were of wine (like that in the Veras Historian of Lucian) 
these Dutchmen would drink it up for the sake of a closer union." 

It is curious and pleasant to observe from these notes of travel in Hol- 
land, more than forty years ago, the high repute in which the best people 
there held the American authors whose works were familiar to them 
through their translation into Dutch. With an ignorance as to the condi- 
tion of society and manners in America so profound, that the question was 
put to Duyckinck by an intelligent Hollander, at a diplomatic dinner, 
whether travellers in his country " subsisted by the chase," they were yet 
highly appreciative of Irving's " Columbus," Marshall's " Life of Washing- 
ton," and Cooper's novels. Perhaps these last had furnished the ground for 
the apprehensions of the worthy diner-out, that, in case he visited New Am- 
sterdam, he would have to depend for his subsistence upon the success of 
the Leather Stockings of Manhattan Island in bagging their daily game. 
However this may be, the same kindly greeting given to these well-ac- 
credited tourists was accorded to the works of their countrymen, a fact 
which loses none of its interest in the thought that this was long before 
the history and the heroes of the Netherlands had received their best com- 
memoration from the pen of an American scholar. 

But, pleasant as were these hospitalities, it is evident that the ideal life 
which our traveller had set before him was quite different from one made 
up of social gayeties. His longings for quiet study and for labor in his chosen 
field were not dissipated. A characteristic entry in his journal betrays, 
perhaps quite unconsciously to himself, his ruling hereditary passion for a 
sequestered life. Returning from a stroll in the Deer Park, a favorite 
resort for his solitary rambles while a resident at the Hague, lie writes : 
" If I were a believer in the ancient transmigration, I would sigh for the 
quiet, ruminating, contented ideas of a well-antlered deer, browsing lei- 
surely along and watching the little business of his world around."

The dream of a home of domestic happiness and of congenial studies 
and pursuits was not long in having its full realization. After leaving 
Holland, in April, 1839, he spent the summer and autumn in England and 
Scotland ; returned to New York late in the year, and renewed at once 
his cherished associations with his books and his co-workers in literary 
labors. His first serious work, after his return home, was in the editor- 
ship, in conjunction with Mr. Cornelius Matthews, of a monthly journal, 
Arcturus. Mr. William A. Jones was also engaged in the enterprise, and 
the three wrote almost all the articles. Some of Duyckinck's best work 
was done in this magazine, which is not inaptly described, in one of 
Edgar A. Poe's sketches of literary men, as " a little too good to enjoy ex- 
tensive popularity." It ran through three volumes, and gave Duyckinck 
the opportunity of using his critical talent on a wider and more inde- 
pendent field than had formerly been open to him, and brought him into 
closer contact with authors and publishers, with whom he was always a 
favorite and a friend. 

In April, 1840, he married Miss Margaret Wolfe Panton, and soon after- 
ward took up his permanent and lifelong residence at No. 20 Clinton 
Place, a home where the affections of wife, and children, and kindred, and 
the companionship of friends, all found their springs of happiness in his 
unvarying serenity of temper, his pure and elevated thought, and his 
devotion to duty. Here he gathered the treasures he most prized, the 
books which represented every department of general literature, but 
specially that in which he was versed. In seeking the best editions and 
in giving completeness to his collection he was aided, as also in many 
literary labors, by his brother, George L. Duyckinck, who, being much 
his junior in years, relied greatly on his counsel and was guided by his 

In the early part of 1847 Mr. Duyckinck undertook the editorship of 
the Literary World, a weekly journal, designed as a vehicle for the best 
criticism on books and art, and the independent and impartial treatment 
of all topics relating to the cultivation of letters. The paper was hardly 
established before he resigned the editorial control to Mr. Charles Fenno 
Hoffman ; but, about a year later, resumed it in connection with his brother 
George, then just returned from an extended tour in Europe, and by their 
united efforts it was carried forward with a single eye to the truest interests 
of a true literature. In the opening article of October 7, 1848, the num- 
ber of the journal which marked the resumption of its .control by Mr. 
Duyckinck, he concludes a striking summary of the aims of its conductors 
with these words, which well express his idea of the functions of the editor : 
"There is a class of topics to which no journalism should be insensible 
at the present day. The advancement of a sound popular education ; the 
extension of the comforts and refinements of the few to the many ; the 
amelioration of poverty and suffering embraced in those questions of social 
improvement which afford- chivalric employment to the best men of the 
times — are all matters which arise naturally in connection with literature, 
science, and art. Virtue in action is the living body, of which invention 
and poetry are the eyes and heart." 

In the conduct of the Literary World an elevated and inspiring tone 
was conspicuous, and Mr. Duyckinck drew around him many able coadju- 
tors. It was at this time I saw him most frequently, always at his own 
house — for even then he mixed very little in society — where I was attracted

by the constant presence of men of mark in letters and art, and by the 
friendship subsisting between the two brothers and myself. The evenings 
in his library will long be remembered by many men whose ways in life 
have widely diverged in the years which followed the period to which 
I now advert, but who then were fond of gathering around his fireside, and 
there discussing the various topics of the day, or listening to the modest 
but always forcible expression of his critical opinions, or the quiet humor 
of his narrative of some incident or reminiscence which gave point to the 
subject of the moment. He was wholly free from the spirit of detraction, 
and, as a critic, was most discriminating, always just to authors of estab- 
lished repute, and always generous and kindly to young aspirants for liter- 
ary distinction. The office of the critic was not allied, in his view, with 
the partisanship of special ideas or authors, nor was its chief function the 
suppression of rivals or the extinction of the weak and feeble. The sav- 
agery of the trenchant style of criticism was as alien to his idea of the true 
sphere of the literary censor as it was to the humanity of his nature, and 
he never turned his pen into a bludgeon or made it the instrument of any 
selfish or unworthy purpose. His own work, as a writer, was always con- 
scientious and complete. To extreme delicacy of taste he added a rare 
grace and nicety of expression, and a certain tact in the handling and 
exhibition of his subject which gave a peculiar charm to what he wrote. 
His standard, both as to the style and the purpose of literary composition, 
was of the highest character. The fine phrase in which Horace describes 
the accomplishments of his friend, 

" ad unguem 

Factus homo," 

he applied as the highest praise of a well-written book. It must be fin- 
ished to the finger-nail, to meet the requirements of a just criticism, and 
to this severe test he sought to subject his own work as well as that of the 
authors on whom he sat in judgment. 

I have dwelt on this period of his career, because it marked the time, 
not only of my closest acquaintance with him, but also of the enforced 
cessation' of our constant intercourse. To a young man, called by neces- 
sity and choice to the severer studies and active duties of the bar, 
Ambrosian nights, and the society of even the choicest spirits in literature 
and art, were temptations to be shunned, and my way of life soon ran in 
a very different path from his. But to know Duyckinck once was to be 
intimate with him always, and the infrequent meetings of later years were 
invariably on the unchanged footing of our first friendship. To turn aside 
at long intervals from the daily routine of life and its common round of 
duties, to revisit him in the quiet of his studies, was, as when one leaves 
the dusty and sun-struck highway to seek in some neighboring and familiar 
shade and covert the spring he knows is hidden under the thicket close at 
hand, to thrust aside the intercepting branches, and to find in the clear 
perennial waters the same refreshment and strength as when he drank 
them first. 

The Literary World was continued to the close of 1853. The experi- 
ment of a purely literary journal, dependent on its own merits, and not on 
the patronage of a publishing house, and appealing rather to the sympa- 
thies than the needs of that very small portion of the public which took 
satisfaction in a weekly presentation of the progress of ideas, without ref- 

1 8 79.] Evert A. Duyckinck — A Memorial Sketch. eg 

erence to their own party politics, their own religious denomination, their 
craving for continuous fiction, or their preference for wood cuts and cari- 
catures, had been fairly tried, and the result was not encouraging. The 
Duyckincks were men of too much sense and too much substance to pur- 
sue a literary enterprise for the mere sake of a small corps of contributors, 
however brilliant, or a select circle of readers, however appreciative. 
They wisely withdrew from the field of newspaper competition, recogniz- 
ing that inexorable law of supply and demand which less responsible pro- 
jectors of like undertakings so often ignore until the very implements and 
paraphernalia by which they sought to enlighten the world and achieve 
immortality are sold under a chattel mortgage or a sheriffs execution. 

But, although the Literary World was not a permanent success, the 
work done upon it was not lost. There is this difference between the 
failures of ventures in journalism and ordinary business reverses, that, 
while the types and presses and mechanical appliances by which they are 
carried on, may figure in a bankruptcy schedule as very unavailable assets, 
the written words to which they have given permanent form and expres- 
sion on the printed page remain, and become a part of the great body of 
literature, to survive and to find their permanent place and value, if they 
are intrinsically worthy of preservation. Many a famous or well-deserv- 
ing poem, essay, or article, has first seen the light as a contribution to 
some short-lived magazine or journal, which may have served as a kind of 
fire-escape for the genius imperilled by its destruction. 

After the Literary World had ceased to exist, Duyckinck turned, 
doubtless with a sense of relief, to the more congenial labors to which the 
rest of his life was devoted, and in which he found his best sphere as a 
scholar and expert in English and American literature — the editing of 
books of permanent value, and the preparation of works of history and 
biography. He had already formed relations with the publishers as a book 
editor, the Library of Choice Reading from the press of Messrs. Wiley & 
Putnam having been one of his earliest projects, and the means of intro- 
ducing some fresh books, out of the beaten track, to the reading public of 
thirty years ago. 

In 1854 he undertook, with his brother, and under arrangements with 
Mr. Charles Scribner as its publisher, the preparation of the Cyclopaedia 
of American Literature, a work of large proportions, demanding most 
extensive researches and a thorough acquaintance with the works of Ameri- 
can authors. The design of the Cyclopaedia was to bring together, as far 
as possible, memorials and records of the writers of the country and their 
works from the earliest period to the present day. " The voice of two 
centuries of American literature," says the preface, "may well be worth 
listening to." In aid of the work, numerous private collections of books 
and manuscripts were freely opened, and the custodians of leading public 
libraries took pleasure in furthering it. Eminent literary men made con- 
tributions of facts and memorabilia, conspicuous among whom was 
Washington Irving, who attested his early friendship for their father in his 
kind offices for the brothers Duyckinck. Their warm and constant friend, 
Dr. John W. Francis, was also most serviceable in his judicious and valu- 
able aid. 

Two years of faithful and diligent work were expended upon die Cyclo- 
paedia, many difficulties were surmounted, and, when it was finally com- 
pleted and published, it took its place at once as the standard exposition 

60 Evert A. Duyckinck — A Memorial Sketch. [April, 

of the history, growth, and development of literature in America, and as 
a monument of the good taste, judgment, and discrimination of its editors. 
A supplement was added by Mr. Duyckinck in 1865, after the death of 
his brother, bringing the work down to that date. 

I can only mention briefly the leading literary labors which followed the 
completion of the Cyclopaedia. In 1856 Duyckinck edited the "Wit and 
Wisdom of Sidney Smith, with a Biographical Memoir and Notes." In 1862 
he undertook the task of preparing the letter-press for the " National Por- 
trait Gallery of Eminent Americans," published by Messrs. Johnson, Fry 
& Co., a series of biographical sketches and portraits, forming two quarto 
volumes. This work had a very extended circulation, the number of 
copies sold having long since exceeded one hundred thousand. A con- 
temporary " History of the War for the Union," in three quarto volumes, 
and another extensive work, " Biographies of Eminent Men and Women 
of Europe and America," were written by him for the same publishers. 
He also edited for them a History of the World in four quarto volumes, 
compiled chiefly from the Encyclopaedia Britannica, and in great part the 
work of his son George. These works were all executed with the fidelity and 
care which marked the performance of every task he undertook. Less elabo- 
rate works were the editing, with a memoir and notes, of the " Poems of 
Philip Freneau," the American edition of the " Poets of the Nineteenth 
Century ;" a memorial of John Allan, the well-known New York book col- 
lector (printed by the Bradford Club), Commemorative Sketches of the 
Rev. Doctor Hawks, Henry T. Tuckerman, and James W. Beekman, read 
before the New York Historical Society, and printed by it, and similar 
memorials of John David Wolfe and Samuel G. Drake, the last named for 
the American Ethnological Society. Immediately after the death of Wash- 
ington living, he gathered together, and published in a single volume, an 
interesting collection of anecdotes and traits of the great author, under the 
title '' Irvingiana." In a note to a friend, giving some particulars in ref- 
erence to this collection, which was made and completed in the short 
space of. a month, he mentions a fact which accords with and illustrates his 
uniform delicacy of feeling and sense of propriety. "I wrote," he says, 
" a little preface in which, among other things, I stated that I had not 
entered on the work without the approval of Mr. Pierre Irving, who, as 
Mr. living's literary executor, I felt should be consulted as to the prepa- 
ration of so extended a notice. For some publisher's notion this preface 
was omitted." 

These various labors fully occupied all of his time aside from that 
given to his family, his church, and the institutions with whose interests he 
was identified . these were the New York Historical Society, which he 
served as a member of its executive committee, and as domestic cor- 
responding secretary, the American Ethnological Society, the American 
Geographical Society, the New York Society Library, of which he was for 
many years, and up to his death, a trustee, aiding it greatly by his full 
knowledge as to books, and Columbia College, of which he was long an 
honored trustee. He was also a corresponding member of the New 
England Historic-Genealogical Society, of the Rhode Island Historical 
Society, and of the New York Genealogical and Biographical Society. 
In these alliances with institutions designed for the promotion of history 
and kindred objects he found a companionship which he preferred to 
general society, and which aided him in his own work. But his chosen 

1 8 79-] Evert A. Duyckinck — A Memorial Sketch. 6 1 

and favorite place and post was his study, over whose door he might 
have written Coleridge's invocation, 

" Tranquillity, thou better name 
Than all the family of Fame." 

Here, in absolute freedom from the distractions of the world, he pursued 
his studies and plied his pen in the scholarly tasks which engaged his 
thoughts. He was fully equipped for the best critical and biographical 
work. He knew the whole field of English literature, " as seamen know 
the sea." The authors of the Elizabethan age were as familiar to him as 
any of their successors of the Victorian era. Those "old fields," out of 
which comes so much of the " new corn " of modern thought and expres- 
sion, were to him like the woodland and meadow around an ancestral 
homestead. In the general range of literature and on most of its special 
subjects his knowledge was complete as to authors and the proper critical 
estimate of their works and the various editions through which they had 
passed, and thus, as scholar, critic, and bibliographer, he was a standard 
authority. I know of no one to whom any vexed questions on points of 
literary inquiry could have been as safely referred for decision without 
further appeal as in a tribunal of last resort. Nor do I know any scholar 
of our country better fitted, by natural disposition and temperament, by 
study and research, by constant practice as a writer, by experience as jour- 
nalist and editor, and by thorough magnanimity and impartiality of judg- 
ment, to discharge the duty and fulfil the trust of a literary critic. 

His collection of books and his use of them was characteristic of the 
man, and indicated at once his catholic and conservative taste, embracing 
rare and particular editions of books, of which he knew the history and 
contents ; special volumes to be prized for their peculiar place in literary 
annals ; illustrated works, selected not so much for their artistic merit as 
with reference to the aid which the pencil brought to the text of the 
author ; and special collections of engravings, among which he greatly 
prized his Stoddarts and his Cruickshanks. He was careful as to the con- 
dition and binding of his books, less as a matter of taste than with refer- 
ence to the desert of the books themselves, and nothing in his library was 
for show. In fact, only his intimate friends knew the number of his books 
or their value. They were kept in various rooms of his house, and 
many of them out of sight ; but they were always at hand when needed 
for reference, or in aid of any theme of discussion, or of the offices of 
friendship, and as occasion required he would, like the householder of the 
Scriptures, " bring forth out of his treasures things new and old." It is 
characteristic of the modesty of the man that his library, the object of his 
constant solicitude and of his just pride, should receive special and fitting 
recognition only after his death. He knew the great importance of pre- 
serving intact a collection which had grown up as the result of the judi- 
cious and careful selection of books in this country and in Europe, by 
himself and his brother, during a period of nearly forty years, and he 
wisely determined to provide for their permanent deposit in the alcoves 
of the fine public library with which Mr. Lenox has enriched the city. 
There the spirit of the gentle and refined scholar will seem to abide 
among the books he loved, which will perpetuate his name and be the 
lasting memorial of his taste and learning. 

The home of which I have spoken, as the centre of so many domestic 

62 Evert A. Duyckinck — A Memorial Sketch. [April, 

affections, was visited by repeated and grievous sorrows. All the younger 
members of the household were, one by one, removed by death : the 
sisters by marriage, to whom he was as an older brother ; the brother, to 
whom he was as a second father, and whose fine reverential spirit and 
intellectual taste found expression in the memoirs of the English Church 
worthies, Ken and Latimer and Herbert ; and the three sons, whose prom- 
ise and performance were full of satisfaction. The youngest, already 
alluded to, for his share in the preparation of the History of the World, 
died in the twenty-seventh year of his age. The oldest, Evert, lived only 
sixteen years : he had developed a fine taste and manly spirit, and was the 
constant companion of his father, to whom he was specially endeared. 
The second son, Henry, a graduate of Columbia College and a clergyman 
of the Protestant Episcopal Church, was cut off in his early prime at the 
post of duty, a victim to his intrepid devotion to the work of beneficence 
and Christian philanthropy to which he had consecrated himself. 

These heavy burdens of domestic grief were borne with a spirit of 
Christian fortitude. Mr. Duyckinck's religious views were simple and firm, 
resting on a thorough acquiescence in the verities of the Christian faith, as 
expressed by the church he revered, and of which he was a devout mem- 
ber. "The great background of his character," writes the Rev. Dr. Mor- 
gan, the Rector of St. Thomas's Church, in which he was many years a 
vestryman, " was his purity, or exquisite delicacy of organization ; it led 
to extreme modesty and a want of even moderate self-assertion, but for 
the most part it was his glory. His pure mind and taste marked him in 
everything. The thing which fell specially under my notice was his pains- 
taking diligence and fidelity in common, humdrum duties. He was clerk 
of the vestry of St. Thomas's, and I have still in my possession some of the 
blank-books which he filled with minutes and memoranda. It must have 
cost him a great deal of labor and consumed much precious time, but it 
was conscientiously done, even to the copying of long specifications. But, 
after all, the mind reverts to his quiet, studious habits and his long commu- 
nion with the best men and minds of all time." 

In a like vein the Rev. Dr. Rylance, Rector of St. Mark's Church, 
where he worshipped up to the time of his last illness, speaks of him as a 
"rare illustration of what Wordsworth calls 'natural piety,' beautified and 
hallowed by the wisdom which is from above." " My visits to him as a 
pastor," he writes, "were always rewarded by some increase of light or 
inspiration to my own mind or heart. But only as the last mortal hour 
approached did the singular excellence of Mr. Duyckinck's Christian char- 
acter reveal itself. Through the long and painful decay of the outer man, 
the inner man was renewed day by day. No complaint or murmur did I 
ever hear from his lips, but the same chastened resignation ever showed 
itself as I approached the sufferer to minister what little comfort I- could 
in his time of need. He would speak naturally, and with an earnestness 
of manner not usual with him, of the future life and of the good hope 
guaranteed by the gospel." 

As an illustration of the catholicity of his religious views, I cite a single 
paragraph from his memorial sketch of the life of his old friend and com- 
panion in travel, James W. Beekman. Speaking of the religious side of 
Mr. Beekman's character, he says, " Parallel with the worth of the Bible 
to man, he regarded, and ever in his own practice religiously maintained, the 
observance of the Christian Sabbath, not in any Puritanical exaggeration 

1 8 79.] Evert A. Duyckinck — A Memorial Sketch. 63 

as a day of austerity and gloom, but as a period of repose from labor and 
its severities, a time for cheerful family and friendly intercourse, of prayer 
and praise, of the opening of the mind to the higher life of the soul. 
There was no spirit of exclusiveness in this, no obtrusion of personal views 
upon others, but a generous liberality of sentiment, which respected the 
rights of those who, mindful of one great end, might differ from him 
as to the particular ecclesiastical road in reaching it." 

In the last literary work undertaken by Mr. Duyckinck, and which was 
completed only a short time before illness prevented him from further labor, 
he was associated with Mr. Bryant. The same publishers, for whom he 
had been engaged on the most important works already noticed, projected 
a popular edition of the Plays of Shakespeare, and the work of prepar- 
ing and annotating the text was undertaken, at their request, by Mr. Bry- 
ant and Mr. Duyckinck. The editions of Shakespeare are almost innu- 
merable, and so are the names of Shakesperian editors and commentators ; 
but seldom has the task of arranging and setting in order that vast array 
of dramatic scenes and persons, whose infinite variety " age cannot wither 
nor custom stale," been confided to scholars more competent for its wor- 
thy execution. For the general supervision of the work and the special 
duty of scrutinizing the text when prepared, and of its final revision, Mr. 
Bryant was, of all American authors, best fitted, by his trained skill in the 
poetic art, his wonderful memory, embracing so much of literature and of 
literary annals, illustrative of the Shakesperian text, his severe taste, his 
long labor in the rendering of the Homeric poems into English verse, his 
large experience of life, his elevated and serene temperament, which 
made him so much a lover of nature and the human race, and so little 
dependent on companionship with individual men. These were rare quali- 
fications for the semi-judicial function of determining the best and truest 
rendering of the very many obscure and doubtful passages in Shakespeare 
over which scholars and critics have so long contended. To Duyckinck 
was confided the severer and laborious task of the first preparation of the 
text, the collation from various readings and editions of the best version, 
and the annotation and arrangement of the whole work. Although the 
duty of the editors was fully discharged some time before the death of 
either of them, the preparation of the illustrations is not yet completed, 
so that whatever credit may justly be accorded to Bryant or to Duyckinck, 
for the work which will associate their names with that of the greatest of 
their masters in English literature, will be a posthumous honor. But the 
nature and extent of their respective shares in the editorial work are 
clearly defined in the manuscript preface by Mr. Bryant, a portion of which 
has recently been made public in the columns of the Evening Post, and in 
which he says : 

" It now remains that something be said of the present edition and the 
accompanying notes. Among the variations in the text in the old copies, 
called readings, are many, the genuineness of which is matter of dispute 
among commentators. Of these, different minds will be apt to make a dif- 
ferent choice, and in consequence any edition will, in respect to some of 
these readings, differ from every other. In selecting the most authentic 
of this class, I should not have been willing to rely on my own judgment 
and opportunities, and have therefore sought the co-operation of Mr. 
Duyckinck, whose studies, habits of research, and discrimination fitted 
him in a peculiar manner for the task. With the assurance of his assist- 

64 Evert A. Duyckinck — A Memorial Sketeh. [April, 

ance, I undertook the work, and it is due to him to say that, although 
every syllable of this edition has passed under my eye, and been consid- 
ered and approved by me, the preliminary labor in the revision and anno- 
tation has been performed by him." 

It is pleasant to think that his last labor was one so congenial to his 
tastes. Hindered by no calls to alien or disturbing duties, or rough com- 
petitions in the outer world, it was pursued in the seclusion which he loved, 
among the ample sources of aid and illustration in the books by which he 
was surrounded. From the first scene to the last, he went page by page, 
line by line, through all the dramas which the world accepts under the 
name of Shakespeare, with the patient and conscientious care imposed by 
the nature of the work and his sense of duty, and, as we may well imag- 
ine, with something of the reverent devotion to the minutest details which 
a mediaeval monk might have given to the task of illuminating the record 
of the legend of a patron saint or the text of the sacred canon. The 
labor thus delighted in was often an antidote to sorrow and pain and a 
source of strength and comfort. He showed me, on one occasion, with 
evident satisfaction, the portion of the work he had in hand ; and to an 
intimate friend, in an interview near the close of his life, when he was suf- 
fering great pain, his patient endurance found relief in words supplied by 
the great dramatist — 

" Come what come may, 

Time and the hour runs through the roughest day." 

The review thus taken of this life of literary labor presents a succes- 
sion of unobtrusive, and yet most faithful and persevering efforts. Under 
the spur of necessity, or by the help of early association with some lead- 
ing and liberal publisher, who could have discerned the practical uses of 
his peculiar gifts, he might, perhaps, have done greater things, and made 
his name more famous. But it was better that he should have pursued his 
own chosen path, and left us this rare instance of an unspoiled scholarly 
life, passed in the midst of a great commercial metropolis, which, with all 
its varied attractions and temptations, could not divert him from the pur- 
suits to which he was devoted as by an irrevocable vow. We are under a 
great obligation to the scholar who thus attests his fealty to the .cause of 
letters. In a great city, with its countless and ceaseless activities, where 
the participants in the daily round of duties, from the drudgery of the most 
menial service to the high-wrought schemes by which the highest material 
interests are served, are under the whip and spur of a necessity or a com- 
petition which suffers no choice and no cessation, the scholar and the 
student are indispensable. The preservation of a literature is no less 
needful than its growth, and while the great mass of educated men must 
follow special callings and professions, which debar them from the general 
studies and researches to which their tastes invite, it is a satisfaction to 
know that there are men qualified for the task, who keep watch over the 
sources and springs of literature, who defend it from what is unworthy, 
who are the custodians of its treasures and the guardians of its permanent 
interests. Their service is not conspicuous, and may be lightly esteemed, 
for it is not performed on a wide stage, nor in the glare of competition. 
They stay by the supplies, and it should be ours to see to it that, in the 
distribution of rewards, " as his part that goeth down to the battle, so 
shall his part be that remaineth by the stuff." 

1879] Evert A. Duyckinck — A Manorial Sketch. 6r 

It may seem, in the retrospect of the life I have sketched, that it presents a 
character without a fault. If so, I might plead the grateful prerogative 
and privilege of the delineator of a purely private life, with no relation to 
public events imposing upon the biographer the duties and restraints which 
attach to the historian. In the portrait of the friend we love, we want to 
see him at his best ; and if it is painted by the hand of affection, it may 
well present, in a single aspect, the idea of all that was most admirable in 
the original. The famous speech of Cromwell to Sir Peter Lely, " Paint 
me as I am," may have been only the shrewd self-assertion of a nature 
which imposed its rude restraint upon whatever was adventitious and not 
within the compass of its own control. And yet, if I were charged, as on 
the oath of a witness, to testify as to the failings of the subject of my 
sketch, I should have to seek for them outside of any knowledge or infor- 
mation of my own. 

His was a life singularly free from blemish or blame, and equally exempt 
from enmity or detraction. It may be said that he was less exposed to 
temptation by reason of his seclusion from the world, but while the 
praises of the solitary life have often been set forth, it cannot be claimed 
in its behalf that the infirmities of the individual man part company with 
him when he quits the society of his fellows. He who mixes least with 
the world is apt to have the worst opinion of his kind, and to become 
querulous, if not cynical, just as the citizen who is earliest and most fre- 
quent in his despair of the Republic is usually the last and least service- 
able in any effort for its rescue. The votaries of a pure literature are no 
exception to the rule. If Cowper fled from the world as the scene " where 
Satan wages still his most successful war," it was only to find in his seclu- 
sion new inward sources of conflict and distress, from which a closer con- 
tact with the world would perhaps have been the best safeguard. But our 
friend, in his self-chosen home life, was always in sympathy with the world 
without, thoroughly patriotic and loyal as a citizen, and most genial and 
hearty in his appreciation of whatever was deserving of general regard 
and esteem. 

Although a recluse, he loved the city, its nearness to his quiet nook of 
study, the concourse of its streets, its public libraries and exhibitions of 
art, its repositories of books and engravings, its strong and busy life. He 
was never willingly away from it. A day's ramble in the country now and 
then sufficed for out-of-town enjoyments. I could never persuade him to 
pass a night under my suburban roof. Like Madame De Stael, who pre- 
ferred a fourth story in the Rue de Bac to all the glories of Switzerland, 
he kept to the city, and shunned a change even in mid-summer heats. 
But, unlike her, his choice was for its solitude and not for its society, and 
such was the purity of his character that it did not corrode or become 
debased by being hidden from the light. 

He is buried in the graveyard at Tarrytown, beside the old church of 
Sleepy Hollow. The spot was selected by himself and his brother long 
ago, as a place of family burial, on account of its loveliness of situation, 
its quaint surroundings, and the associations which have been woven about 
it by the master hand of Irving, whose grave is near his own. Hard by 
this rural solitude, along the iron pathway which skirts it, the heavily 
freighted trains move day and night, and eager crowds hurry to and fro on 
their ceaseless errands, while beyond, on the broad river, the gathered

fruits of the cornfields and prairies of the West go to seek a market in the 
great Metropolis, or beyond the sea. In this contrast of the grave, with 
its unchanging repose, beside the restless, rapid movements of the living, 
we may find an image, not inapt, of the life we have surveyed, so near 
the stir and rush of the outward world, and yet. in its calmness and seren- 
ity, so far removed, and, as we turn from the peaceful life, and the quiet 
grave, both alike are bright with the best memories of earth and the smile 
of heaven. 


By Charles B. Moore. 

Many interesting particulars are known of the first settlers of New 
England and of New York. Their perilous enterprises were recorded, 
reported, and studied, especially to guide others. 

But after the arrivals and settlements became numerous, it was more 
difficult and perhaps less necessary to preserve historic or characteristic 
descriptions, either of persons or families, enterprises or voyages. And 
now, it is not easy to find where many of the people came from to Long 
Island, or New York, or had lived in England, Ireland, Scotland, or the 
Netherlands, before they came here. 

Brief sketches of some early settlers are contained in Young's Chron- 
icles, and in the histories of Southampton, and of Long Island, and the 
introduction to the Corwin Genealogy. The New England Historical and 
Genealogical Register contains other sketches. The New York Genea- 
logical and Biographical Record has, to some extent, pursued*the idea. 
There are many others, and almost every family pedigree contributes to 
aid a general view. (See i Essex Institute, 97, the I Veils Genealogy, &c. 

But each writer takes particular notice of his own class. The clerical 
writers, and a few connected with the government, wrote and preserved 
the earliest accounts. Their own class, of course, was described in great- 
est detail. Other classes also deserve notice. Some seem to have been 
very poorly described. 

In 16 18, Capt. John Smith reported to Lord Bacon his voyages and 
views. He claimed that, from four years' voyages to New England, in 
three things they had been successful. First, a great plenty of fish, easily 
caught, by two months of fishing. Second. The French and English, by 
trading off cheap articles to the Indians (such as hooks and lines, beads 
and glass) had obtained near thirty-six thousand beaver skins ; which were 
very valuable. And third, all sorts of timber for shipping were most plen- 
tiful. He gave the Hollanders as an example to be imitated : " whose 
endeavours by fishing," he said, "cannot be suppressed by all the king of 
Spain's golden powers." Perhaps to please Bacon and King James, he 
said, "Truth is more than wealth, and industrious subjects are more avail- 
able to a king than gold." (Historical Magazine, Vol. 5, p. 195.) On the

coasts of Scotland, the success of the Dutch in getting fish and beaver 
was noticed, and attempts were made to compete with them. 

Sir Wm, Alexander, a native of Scotland, afterwards Earl of Stirling, 
was a member of King James' Privy Council. He, representing his Scotch 
constituents, aided to form an incorporated company for fishing, and 
sought land in the colonies for settlement. The sea-coast was the attrac- 
tive part — doubtless by reason of the fish — and the most convenient harbor 
for ships, and islands were liked by him quite as well as the main-land. 
{Life, by Slafter.) 

The Virginia Company, at the outset, intended to send over shipwrights. 
So early as January, 1622, the governor and council in this country, 
entreated the company at London to go on with their purpose of sending 
the shipwrights, giving their reasons in these words : " for this country is 
yet seated on the river's side. They (the shipwrights) will be here, 
men of singular use for the building of ships, pinnacies, and small vessels, 
without which we cannot well prosecute our discovery, trade with our 
neighbours, or transport ourselves or our goods from one place to another." 
(Neill's Virginia Company, 285.) 

In June, 1622, the Virginia Company in London, sent over to Virginia 
" Capt. Tho. Barwick, with 25 persons under his government, for the 
building of boats, ships, and pinnaces ; " saying, " not anything hath put 
us to so much trouble and charge as this project hath done." (lb., p. 
308.) And in Virginia, it seems, shipwrights were not very successful. 

Capt. Barwick & Co. arrived, and were accommodated at James City. 
They worked first "in houseing themselves." Many were lost by sickness. 
{/b., P- 373-) . 

There and in other places, the early shipwrights had first to build their 
own houses. They used large and hard timber for frames, it being plenty ; 
they sawed their own boards out of hard wood, and hewed the hard tim- 
ber, before they had saw-mills j* they used their own tools and plans, 
which were different from the house-carpenter's, and, as a result, their 
frames of buildings were stronger, and their houses lasted longer than the 
others ; some of them have been examined by persons now living ; some 
of the timber yet exists, though perhaps in granaries and out-houses, or 
only in forlorn looking old buildings. In other cases the old pattern has 
been imitated, when descendants familiar with it have removed into new 
places. A curious one could be seen in the old house of a first settler 
of Orange County. (Eager's History of Orange County, 368.) 

The shipwrights thus erected early monuments of themselves ; of their 
trade and their skill. To comprehend the changed circumstances, we 
must bear in mind that the small vessels called ship's, were then built much 
stronger than now. We have a description of the frame-work of a ship 
wrecked on Cape Cod, and buried in the sand for some two hundred 
years. (In N. E. Hist, and Ge?ie. Reg.) Ballasted, so that they could 
not be capsized, or remain wrong side up ; they were to be framed so 
strongly that no tossing or gamboling over the waves could break them. 
And for such long and hazardous voyages, we can imagine how necessary 
it was to show the inexperienced voyager the strong timbers and braced- 
frames upon which so much depended. We need not stop to think of the 
sea sick passenger. 

* The first saw-mill, it has been written, was in 1643. Pierson Genealogy, p. 54.

At the south, the expected provisions and support of the intended settlers, 
by fishing, failed. Fish were not abundant. Provisions were indispensibly 
necessary. The prospect of obtaining food, by fishing, was better at the 
north. This was proclaimed. King James made a grant of Nova Scotia 
(New Scotland), to Sir William Alexander in 162 1. In this grant the king 
was made to say : " no gain is easier or more safe than the planting of new 
colonies in uncultivated regions, where the means of living and food abound." 
Sir William published his " Encouragement to Colonies," in 1624. He took 
pains to show in this, his northern colony, abundant resources for food ; — 
"salmon and smelt in the great river ; trout in every little brook ; herrings, 
in a lake, easily taken, and, all the year over, shell-fish ; such as lobsters, 
crabs, cockles, and mussels." 

The Plymouth colony was recommended to the north, especially, for the 
present profit of fishing. (Neill's Virginia Company, 131.) 

This was the turning point which resulted in success. At first, after ar- 
rival, " the famine was very severe," and "the first supply of provisions 
was obtained from the fishing vessels ; of which 35 came in the spring 
from England to the coast." (Belknap's Life of Bradford.) A few 
small shallops were retained. " Had we not been in a place where 
divers sorts of shell-fish are that may be taken by the hand, we must have 
perished." So wrote their early historian. In 1624 a pinnace was stranded 
and lost. A ship carpenter having been sent to them, he built " two very 
good and strong shallops, with a great and strong lighter." 

In 1625 one of these was first used on a voyage to the Kennebeck, in 
Maine ; disposing of surplus corn, and bringing back 700 lbs. of beaver, 
besides other furs. They engaged also in fishing, and erected buildings 
for fishing at Nantasket and Cape Ann. 

In 1626 the ship carpenter was dead. The shallops were too small and 
open. The house carpenter undertook to lengthen one of them and put 
on a deck ; but they dare not venture in her around the end of Cape Cod. 

In 1627, they built another pinnace. There was no other history of 

Two years later, in 1629, 35 families of their relatives and friends ar- 
rived from Leyden. They had to be supported for 18 months. 

The Massachusetts Company, better provided, arrived. The new com- 
pany entered earl)- and largely into plans for fishing and for ship-building. 
(Young's Chronicles of Massachusetts, 185.) The largest arrivals were 
probably in 1630. We have many accounts of individuals who then came 
over, but, unfortunately, no general list of passengers at this period. The 
crowd planned to clear the fields and to form villages and towns. The 
first difficulties were for food and lodging. The new settlers, generally 
farmers, were yet without crops, and many without houses. They held or 
seized the power of ruling on the land, and used this power to help them- 
selves to houses and to food, for which all were straining. They limited by 
law the price of labor to is. 6d. per day even for skilled carpenters, and when 
fish were scarce and difficult to secure, they limited also the price for fish. 
By working hard and failing to secure fish in plenty, or by bringing in more 
than were wanted, fishermen might lose. But they and the shipwrights 
were prevented by legal compulsion from obtaining a profit by their skill, 
or by an extra price on occasions when carpenters or fish were scarce, and 
difficult, almost impossible, to be obtained. The law-makers were inter- 
ested judges, and nearly all on one side. Their course did not invite others to

bring supplies, but presently drove fishermen and shipwrights away. And 
to defend their selfish action they made various harsh charges, which a little 
cautious examination shows were substantially unfounded. No man is fit 
to be a judge against others in his own case. 

Shipwrights have been valuable and successful pioneers in many of the 
new settlements. They have accompanied fishermen, and all other navi- 
gators, and sometimes have preceded them. They have generally aided 
to introduce and develop commerce. Their class certainly deserves at- 
tention as well as others. 

In this country we can detect and trace the ports and harbors which they 
have frequented or used. Can we not trace some of them in England ? 

It is worth an effort to trace all we can. Those who have studied in 
this line assure us it is a rich mine for exploration ; and we are ready to 
believe that knowledge of the past may be useful in the future. Let us 
try it. 

We have some very doubtful stories that we need not stop to dwell upon ; 
but we have also some very reliable data. 

We have the old statutes and ordinances, which, to a careful reader, 
tell a great many facts. And we have many old records. These are the 
framework, such as an old ship-builder might use for a work that may 
defy the winds and waves of criticism, and be safe to rely on for our 

An English statute exacted an oath of allegiance from soldiers ; an oath 
was also required from English passengers going abroad from English ports. 
The object or policy of this we may not fully comprehend. Perhaps it was 
merely to prevent Englishmen from becoming foreigners ; perhaps to secure 
all discoveries for the English king. As it seems, it had little connection 
with any effort to give Englishmen legal protection when abroad. Perhaps 
the wise men in power thought that they could manage the disaffected 
better at home than abroad. They did not succeed very well in either 
place. An oath was one of their forms of inducing men to do what they 
otherwise would not. It proved a very frail reliance. But it had some 
effect. It would bind the honest and religious, but not the most mischiev- 
ous and dangerous. 

MSS. books were kept in London to preserve an account of these oaths. 
One was entitled "A Booke of Entrie for Passengers by y e Commission, 
and Souldiers according to the Statutie passing beyond the Seas, begun at 
Christmas 163 1, and ending at Christmas 1632." 

The front part of the book contained entries of the names of soldiers. 
The other end was used for lists of emigrants, traders, travellers, etc. 
This part happens to be preserved entire. A Hew of the persons named 
can be identified. 

This book does not contain the names of passengers by the ship William 
and Erancis, Capt. Thomas, which sailed from England in March, and 
arrived at Boston on 5th June, 1632, and which brought over Rev. Stephen 
Batchelor, Rev. Thos. James, sen., Rev. Mr. Welde, Edward Winslow, and 
others — perhaps 60 passengers. A part of these are named ; and some of 
them probably removed, afterward, from Lynn, where Mr. Batchelor first 
settled, to Southampton, L. I. 

On 22d June, 1632, among ^^ men named in the book, who were 
"transported to New England to the Plantacon p r . cert, from Capten 
Mason " who (it is stated) had " taken the oath of allegiance according to 

JO Shipwrights, Fishermen, Passengers from England. [April, 

the Statute," were the names of "Jo. Browne, Jo. Benjamin, Richard Ben- 
jamin, and John White." Probably they all settled in this country : per- 
haps first at Boston or Watertown, Mass. (See Drake's City of Boston, 
and Bond's History of Watertown.) The last name on this list was 
'•Charles Glouer " (meaning Glover). He was a shipwright. In 1639 
he was in Salem, Mass., and he ranks as the earliest emigrant to America 
of those who afterward permanently settled at Southold, L. I. (See Ap- 
pendix.) A son of one of these Benjamins was probably another early 
settler of Southold. 

The next earliest emigrant to this country perhaps was Matthias Corwin, 
who was at Ipswich, Mass., in 1634, and afterward a permanent settler at 
Southold, where he died in 1658. (See Corwin Genealogy.) 

On 15th August, 1633, William Wood, a very intelligent man, after a 
residence of four years in this country, returned to England. He soon 
published at London his description of the new country and of the success 
of the settlements. He encouraged emigration. He estimated 4,000 souls 
in New England, 1,500 head of cattle, 4,000 goats, and swine innumerable. 
These first 4,000 we have the smallest means of tracing, in detail, abroad ; 
but many of them have left strong marks in the woods here ; many trees 
were cut or blazed, many huts built, much game destroyed ; many farms 
and villages were planned and marked out, but these took a long period 
to fill out and settle. 

There were kept at London books for oaths of soldiers and passengers, 
each year, beginning and ending at Christmas. Only a few of these books 
have been preserved and found, so that they can be referred to. 

For the years 1633 and 1634 there were a few scattered lists kept at 
other ports, which have been found, and many of the passengers named in 
them have been traced in this country, chiefly at Watertown, Mass. 

In February, 1633-4, ten ships bound for New England, and lying in 
the Thames, at or near London, were stopped until further order, by war- 
rant issued by the Privy Council. The masters of the vessels were called 
before the Council and charged as to their duties. Each was required to 
give a bond in jQioo conditioned (1st) that they would prevent swearing 
among the passengers ; (2d) that they would cause prayers from the common 
prayer-book to be read morning and evening ; (3d) that they would receive 
no person as a passenger without a certificate of his having taken the oaths 
of allegiance and supremacy ; and (4th) that upon their return they would 
report the names of all the passengers. They were then permitted to sail. 
The bond exhibits rather curiously the predominance of the impractical 
clerical party in the Privy Council. We have some, but not many names 
of passengers reported by these ships for that year. The great and wealthy 
men were keenly alive to the idea of securing large tracts of land, and of 
becoming lords of manors. The government got little credit for attempt- 
ing to prevent distress and ruin among the laboring passengers, of which 
much occurred in Virginia, in Maine, and at Plymouth and elsewhere. 

Capt. Thomas Young, and his nephew, Robert Evelyn, were sent from 
England to Virginia, and afterward to New England, to offer supplies, and 
to open trade between the two, and guard against famine and distress. 
Their adventures require a separate description. It is believed they had a 
material influence upon Southold. 

In 1635 we have fuller lists of passengers. The next volume discovered 
at London commences its entries with the date 29th December, 1634, and 

1879] Shipwrights, Fishermen, Passengers from England. j\ 

has for its latest date 24th December, 1635. About one-third of it is taken 
up with the names of persons going to some port of the low countries 
(the Netherlands), some to reside there and some to return. At the other 
end of the book are entered the names of passengers for New England, 
Virginia, the American (or West India) Islands, and some soldiers. The 
vellum wrapper has this inscription : " The Register of the names | of all 
y e Passenger w ch | Passed from y e Port of | London for an whole j yeare 
ending at | Xmas 1635." 

This book contains many passenger lists, some with numerous names, and 
of these a large array can be identified. The king's government required 
the additional oath called "the oath of supremacie," to the effect that the 
king was the supreme head on earth of the church as well as of the State. 
Some of the passengers, besides taking oaths at the shipping port, produced 
certificates from the magistrates and clergymen of their parishes, showing 
their conformity to the orders and discipline of the English Church. These 
were required or favored by the authorities ; and they aid us now in tracing 
some of the emigrants to the homes of their nativity, where all of them 
were accustomed to the English Church. Two ships brought passengers 
from Kent County, as appears by their certificates, dated at Tenterden, 
Maidstone, Ashford, Sandwich, Canterbury, and other places in that county. 

In one of the early entries in this book, dated 16th March, 1634 (which 
we would call 1635), are the names of persons to be transported to New 
England, embarked in the Christian, of London, John White, master,, 
" bound thithei " — "the men having taken y e oath (of) allegiance & supre- 
macie." Of these " Tho. Coop," ret. 18, and "Edward Preston," ret. 13, 
probably visited Southold. Others can be traced in New England. 

The date 1st April, 1635, introduces passengers in the Hopewell, of 
London, William Bundocke, master, bound for New England. Among 
these were William Purryer, ret. 36, Alice his wife, aet. 37, Mary, ret. 7, Sarah, 
set. 5, and Katheren, ret. 18 mo., his children. This man was one of the 
original settlers of Southold, L. I., with his family. He son to pre- 
serve his name ; but his daughters left many descendants under the names 
of Reeve, Mapes, and Osmanor Osborn (and perhaps Roe and Wells), and 
they are now largely represented in other names. In his will he names his 
grandson James Reeve.' With him, in the Hopewell, embarked Edmond 
Earrington, ret. 47, wife Eliza, ret. 49, and four children ; and John Cooper, 
ret. 41, his wife Wibroe, ret. 42, and five children. These three men, Purryer, 
Earrington, and Cooper, were described " of Oney, in Buckinghamsher," 
doubtless meaning the Parish of Olney, on the river Ouse, in the north 
part of the county of Buckingham, not far from Northampton Co., nor 
from Bedford Co., 57 miles from London. At this place Cowper, the poet, 
once resided. It was in a central part of England, and had little intercourse 
with the coast, with shipwrights, or with fishing. 

Philip Kyrtland, ret. 21, and Nathaniel Kyrtland, ret. 19, embarked in 
their company, described " of Sherington, in Buckinghamsher," a small 
parish about 5 miles S. of Olney, near Newport, Pagnell. They were not 
fishermen, nor shipwrights, and they attempted to settle on the western part 
of Long Island, where there was wider room for farmers or shepherds, and 
were driven off by the Dutch. One was afterward at Southampton, L. I. 
The other returned to New England and lived at Salem or Lynn. 

In the same vessel came George Griggs, ret. 42, Alice his wife, ret. 32, 
and five children. He was described of " Landon," probably meaning. 

72 Shipwrights, Fishermen, Passengers from England. [April, 

Lavendon, about 3 miles north-east of Olney. He was at Boston in 1636, 
probably settled at Roxbury, and died in 1660. John Griggs, probably of 
this family, settled in Gravesend, near the south-west corner of Long Island. 
This party, it is believed, were of the agricultural class. One of them, 
Edmond Farrington, was an enterprising man, of whom we should take 
notice. He settled in Massachusetts. In 1638, at Lynn, he had 200 
acres laid off for him. On 29th June, 1639, he obtained an agreement 
and grant of land on Long Island, from James Farrett, the agent for Sir 
William Alexander, before named, the first Earl of Sterling, the courtier 
and poet, who had a grant of all Long Island. Farrett's power of attorney 
contemplated the approval of his grants by Gov. Winthrop, of Massachu- 
setts. The Governor did not approve of removals from Massachusetts, 
but heartily opposed them. The grant to Farrington, not approved by 
Winthrop, by deed dated 26th August, 1639, was approved and confirmed 
by the Earl of Sterling abroad, and doubtless became the basis of the first 
regular settlement of Southold. 

Emigrants explored the country, but waited to secure a good title before 
" settling." Farrington did not himself become a settler of Long Island; 
he sent several sons, and sent or introduced others. He signed the en- 
gagement for a plantation at Southampton, with two of his sons, the two 
Kirtlands, Thomas Terry, and others. 

A large number of passengers, from different parts of England, embarked 
in the same vessel, the Hopewell. Among them were Robert Titus, with 
wife and children, who became largely represented in the western parts of 
Long Island. (See Riker's Newtown, p. 327.) 

Provisions at Salem became very dear. Some potatoes from Bermuda 
sold for 2d. sterling a pound. 

It was a great object to get stock for farms — cows, horses, hogs, sheep, 
&c; and it should be noticed that two Dutch vessels left the Texel in Hol- 
land, on 27th April, 1635, and came to anchor at Salem, Mass., on the 3d 
of June following, bringing live stock, 27 Flanders mares, valued at ^34 
each, and 3 horses, and provisions, with probably some passengers. 

Dutch ships were bringing passengers to New York.* Some English- 
men had lived in Holland, mostly Protestants, persecuted in Queen Mary's 
reign ; others had traded there. Coming back to England they were 
Protestants, more advanced perhaps than English residents, in the refor- 
mation of the Church. There were "Reformed Dutch Churches" in Eng- 
land and in the province of Canterbury. The Archbishop Laud, sustained 
by the English king, required all the reforming churches within the prov- 
ince of Canterbury to adopt the English liturgy.f Many did not like 
that liturgy so well as their own reformed plans, and they sought more 
liberty in the woods and along the coasts here. 

The Dutch, having secured a footing at New York, wanted Englishmen 
to join them. 

Early in 1635, a Dutch ship of 400 tons, bound to New York, was lying 
at Cowes, an outport of London, ready to sail. Her officers, as reported 
to the English Privy Council, were drawing as many of His Majesty's 
subjects as they could to go with them, by offering them large or favorable 
conditions (embracing land and liberty of worship). The Council at once 
despatched an order to restrain British subjects from going in that or any

other Dutch vessel " to the Hollanders plantation on Hudson's River." 
(3 N. Y. Col. MSS., ig.) But this did not in terms prevent the Dutch 
ship from taking passengers to New England and landing them, and then 
going to New York. 

It seems probable that some were so taken. Some English vessels took 
Dutch passengers to New York. (1 Brod. Hist, of N. Y., p. 263.) 

The Abigail, Robert Hackwell, master, commenced receiving passen- 
gers at London on 15th June, 1635, and continued to receive them on 
different days until 10th July, when John Winthrop, Junior, with one brother 
and sister, children of Gov. Winthrop of Massachusetts, came on board 
(perhaps at Bristol). He had visited Ireland and Scotland, formed many 
acquaintances, received an authority from some assignees of the patent for 
Connecticut, and he invited emigrants. He was afterward Governor of 
Connecticut. Among the passengers by the Abigail was "Jo : Harbert," 
called "shoemaker, aat. 23," and some companions with certificates from 
the mayor of Northampton, probably afterward of Salem and of Southold ; 
" Christopher Foster, aat. 32," afterward of Southampton, L. L, with wife 
Frances, aat. 25, and ch. Rebecca, aat. 5, Nathaniel, aat. 2, afterward of 
Huntington, L. I., and John, aat. 1 year. Also " Jo. Terry, aat. 32." This 
vessel arrived at Boston by the 5th of October, and it is reported that the 
Rev. Hugh Peters came over in her, not named on the passenger list. 

We must restrict our sketch, in giving names, to such persons as may be 
traced to Southold, or to some part of Long Island, as our main object, but 
may include some who settled at Salem, Mass., or who came from ancient 
South wold, England, or from Great Yarmouth in its neighborhood, ports 
on the farthest N. E. points of England, by way of gathering the surround- 
ings and explaining the movements of those who came early into what 
became the State of New York. This would be necessary if we had only 
the history of Southold in view. 

It appears that men in the northeastern parts of England, who were of 
the sea-coast, and the nearest neighbors of the Dutch in Holland, were 
more ready than others to settle in this region, along the coast, and near 
the Dutch, who then had possession of Brooklyn and Manhattan Island, 
and generally of the Hudson river and its neighborhood. Yorkshire, in 
several respects, was connected with the same idea ; but had some dif- 

/ In 1635 we find the passenger lists of fifteen vessels, which sailed from 
England for some of the West India Islands. A few of these passengers 
can be traced to New England, but not often the same year. In one of 
the lists of persons bound from London to St. Christopher's appear the 
names of William Salmon, aet. 24, and Thomas Terrill, aat. 18 ; perhaps 
afterward of Southold. In another, of the Dorset, bound to the Bormodes, 
(Bermudas), are the names of " Tho. More," aat. 18; "John Tustin," 
aat. 16, and "Wm, Casse," aat. 19; names that sound very much like South- 
old. The first Thomas More, who came with Martha Young, his wife, and 
several children from Salem, Mass., to Southold, by report was a shipwright 
The True Love, of London, Robert Dennis, master, on the 10th of June, 
1635, reported the names of 125 passengers to be transported to the 
Bermudas, or Somer Islands, the passengers having been examined by the 
minister of Gravesend (the shipping port near London) as to their conform- 
ity to the orders and discipline of the Church of England, and all taking 
the oath of allegiance — only ten of these were reported over thirty years 

74 Shipwrights, Fishermen, Passengers from England. [April, 

of afT e — nearly all were young men ; and among these were William Wells, 
reported only seventeen years old, who probably came to Southold, and 
some others, who can be traced in other places. 

The Defence, Thomas Bostock, master, commenced taking passengers 
at London, bound for New England, about the 2d of July, 1635, and con- 
tinued on the 4th, 6th, 10th, nth, and 18th. The passengers produced 
certificates of ministers and magistrates from various different parts of the 
country, of which the master preserved a note ; several of them are worthy 
of attention. There were Adam Mott, a taylor, ret. 39, with certificates 
from Cambridge; Sarah his wife, ret. 31, and their children (Jo., aet. 14, 
Adam, ret. 12, Jonathan, ret. 9, Elizabeth, ret. 6, and Mary, ret. 4); John 
Sheppard, marked husbandman, ret. 36, Margaret his wife, ret. 31, and 
Thomas, his child, ret. three months; Roger Harlakenden, ret. 25. Eliza his 
wife, ret. 18, Mable his sister, ret. 21, (afterward the wife of Gov. Haines, 
of Connecticut); and as their servants, Anne Wood, ret. 23, Samuel Shep- 
herd, ret. 22, Joseph Cooke, ret. 27, and George Cooke, ret. 25"; also, Joh. 
Jackson, called "a wholesale man in Burchen Lane"; Sara Jones, ret. 
34, and six children ; Tho. Donn, ret. 25 ; William Hubbard, ret. 40, and 
large family; William Read, ret. 30, Mabell Read, probably his wife, ret. 30, 
and three children ; and many others. This vessel arrived safely at Boston 
on 3d of October, and we can trace many of the passengers. John Sheppard, 
called a husbandman, was the Rev d John, thus concealed, who has writ- 
ten a graphic account of himself, his hazards and escapes, and of his voy- 
age, and who has described several of his companions above named, the 
courses pursued in England, the settlement of Cambridge, Mass., and the 
forming of Harvard College. The Rev d Mr. Jones (see 6 N. Y. Gen., 
and B. Rec, 57) and Rev d Mr. Wilson came by the same vessel, but their 
names do not appear on the list. (Young's Chron. of Mass.) The wife 
of Rev d Mr. Jones is named above. Mr. Wilson had before been driven by 
foul weather upon the coast of Ireland ; visiting Galway first, and then 
starting again, he had been forced back by tempest to Kinsale, in Ireland, 
where he "gave much satisfaction to the Christians there about New 
England." (1 Winth. Journal, 172.) 

There were two vessels called "The James." One started in company 
with the Gabriel; it was of London, of 220 or 300 tons, William Cooper, 
master, and sailed on 4th of June, having about 100 passengers, called 
"honest people of Yorkshire." It arrived at Boston on 16th August. 
The Rev d Richard Mather was one of the passengers, and wrote an ac- 
count of the voyage. (Young's Chronicles of Mass., 447), describing his 
adventures and naming some of his companions. Many of the vessels, 
crowded with passengers, were old and leaky and poorly supplied. There 
was a great deal of suffering. One, John Bayle, came in the True Love ; 
another, John Bailey, and John Bailey Jr., came in the Gabriel, which 
was wrecked at Pemaquid (H. 2). Escaping from the wreck, they tried 
several places, but settled at Newbury, Mass. (23 N. E. Hist, and Gene. 
Reg., 150, 152, &c.) One, John Bayley, afterwards came to Southold. 

The other vessel, called the James, John May, master, received passen- 
gers at London, on 22d July, 1635, bound for New England. Among 
them were Thomas Terry, ret. 28 ; Robert Terry, ret. 25, and Richard 
Terry, ret. 1 7 ; names which can be easily recognized at Southold. This 
vessel arrived in October, and in her came, among others, the Rev d 
William Leverich, a graduate of Cambridge College, England, who, after 

1 8 79.] Shipwrights, Fishermen, Passengers from England. jr 

stopping at various places, came to Long Island and settled, first at Hunt- 
ington, and afterward at Newtown, L. I. 

About the same time, the Blessing, John Lester, master, received 
passengers to be transported to New England; among whom were 
"Jo. Jackson, fisherman, aet. 40; Margaret Jackson, ret. 36, and John, 
their son, ret. 2. (See App'x.) Richard Hollingworth, shipwright, ret. 40 ; 
Susan, ret. 30, and eh., William, ret. 7, Richard, ret. 4, Susan 2 and Eliza 
3 ; Richard Moore, ret. 20 ; Robert Turner, ret. 24 ; John Hart, shoe- 
maker, ret. 40, and Mary, probably his wife, ret. 31 ; all of whom apparently 
settled first at Salem, Mass., but soon had some connection with Southold. 
There were many came over named Jackson. The first man who had a 
deed for land in Southold was Richard Jackson; he probably remained in 
Massachusetts, married the widow of Richard Brown, and lived until 1672, 
when he was ninety years of age. The land conveyed was near Green- 
port, afterward owned by Thomas More. In the same vessel came some 
of the Vassall family, who were disappointed or were badly treated, and 
who returned by the way of Barbadoes, to England. Rev d Joshua Hobart, 
afterward of Southold, married into this family. 

The next vessel which received passengers at London, between 13th 
and 23d July, 1635, to be transported to New England, was one particu- 
larly interesting to us. It was " The Love," Joseph Young, master. 
Only eight passengers, besides the master, were named on the book. Two 
names, "Willm. Cherrall, baker, ret. 26, and Ursula Cherrall, ret. 40, were 
probably copied erroneously, for William Charles and his wife, mother or 
sister, who arrived at Salem and were at Marblehead in 1648. (See App'x.) 
Four others, Francis" Harman, ret. 43 ; Jo. Harman, ret. 12, and Sara, ret. 
10, and Walter Parker, ret. 18, are not traced. The remaining two pas- 
sengers named were "Willm. Browne," called "fisherman," ret. 26, and 
"Mary Browne," ret. 26, doubtless his wife. (See App'x.) 

Recent investigations demonstrate that this Capt. Joseph Young, master 
of the Love, was of Southwold, in England, and married there Margaret, 
daughter of the Rev. Christopher Young, who from 161 1 to 1626 was 
Vicar of Reydon, the parish in which the seaport of Southwold, on the east 
coast of England, was situate. 

They, Capt. Joseph Young and Margaret his wife, had a son Joseph 
baptized at old Southwold on 23d January 1633-4, and a son John bap- 
tized there on the 23d March, 1635 ; and these four, Capt. Joseph, his 
wife Margaret, and sons Joseph and John, all came from England to Salem, 
Mass., and afterward to Southold, L. I., and settled and died in Southold. 
' William Browne, the passenger in the Love, by report, was a son of Fran- 
i cis Browne, of Weybrid Hall, Suffolk Co., England. He was not a fisher- 
man, but had served an apprenticeship to be a merchant at Southwold, 
Eng., and had married there Mary Young, a sister of Capt. Joseph, or of 
his wife, not exactly traced. This William Browne, called a shopkeeper 
; at Salem, is supposed the one who settled and flourished there, leaving a 
: family which acquired distinction (see App'x.), and not the one at South- 
i ampton, L. I., in 1648; who died there in 1650, and whose daughter Mary 
; married Robert Marvin; but this is not quite certain. He had a brother 
: Richard Brown, in London, who had descendants. It should be noted 
1 that in 1626, Rev d Christopher Young was succeeded as Vicar of Reydon 
by Rev d John Goldsmith. The first clergyman of Southold, L. I., the 
Rev d John Youngs, was married there, and had his son Thomas baptized 
there. The exact relationship, if an)', to the old Vicar Christopher, does 

J 6 Shipwrights, Fishermen, Passengers from England. [April, 

not appear, but he named one of his sons Christopher, and so did Capt. 
Joseph. The maiden name of his first wife is given as Lewington, per- 
haps Livingston ; she was a young widow when he married her. Her 
daughter by her first husband was named Ann Palgrave, and came over 
with him and married Nicholas Woodbury, of Massachusetts. 

Another interesting vessel was the " Batchelor," of London, Thomas 
Webb, master, which on nth August, 1635, received " Lyon Gardiner," 
jet. 36, " Mary his wife," set. 34, "Eliza Colet, their maid servant," aet. 23, 
and "Wm. Jope," ret. 40, who were to pass to New England, having 
brought certificate of their conformity. The vessel, called a " Norsey 
bark," brought over 12 men. The lasting memorial of this passage is our 
Gardiner's Island and its inhabitants. 

Many vessels, of course, sailed from other English ports. Weymouth 
was then one of the seaports nearest to this country. Some ports in 
Wales and Ireland were nearer. In a list of passengers bound for New 
England, kept at WevmOuth, dated 20th March, 1635, appeared the names 
of Joseph Hull, of Somerset, minister, with wife, seven children and three 
servants ; and of William King, Dorothy his wife, and four children. Mr. 
King stopped at Salem. His son Samuel and several daughters settled in 
Southold. He has been largely represented both in Southold and in 
Salem by descendants. " Mr. Joseph Hull" was in Salem in 1637, and 
asked to be received as an inhabitant. An entry was once made that he 
was so received, but it was afterward erased. He was a preacher at Wey- 
mouth. He, at a later date, had descendants at Southold. 

The vessels and passengers of 1635 were very numerous. The arrivals 
exceeded the expectations of the previous settlers, and exceeded all prep- 
arations made for them or by them, either for food or house-room. Many 
circumstances combined to occasion this crowd, and, as a result, much suf- 
fering. There was not only no glass for windows, but no houses at all of 
any kind for the strangers, nor food for their hungry stomachs. The cold, 
much greater than in England farther north, was not anticipated ; nor the 
hunger sufficiently estimated to be provided for or guarded against. Some 
of the vessels which brought passengers had not supplies sufficient to last 
their crews for the voyage back, and had the greatest difficulty to obtain 
them. The lives of many depended upon fish and fishermen. The grand 
difficulty was the want of sufficient food and covering to sustain life until 
many other things could be secured. 

A second edition of the work of William Wood was published and cir- 
culated in England in 1635, and it doubtless aided the result by which 
more emigrants left for New England than in any other year. He dedi- 
cated the book " to the right worshipful, my much honored friend, Sir 
William Armyne, knight and baronet." The latter was created a baronet 
28th Nov., 1619, and called " Airmine of Osgoodby," a joint parish with 
Kirkby, near Market Rasen. He was M. P. for Grantham, Lincolnshire, 
in the Long Parliament, and became a member of the Council of State. 

The defect of Wm. Wood's book and of other communications made to 
England was that they did not report the extreme difficulties and wants 
about food, houses, and clothing. They found plenty of land — (which had 
become scarce and dear in England). They were sanguine and enthusi- 
astic, and the early sufferers who had mastered the difficulties — resorting 
to hunting and fishing — probably thought they had been overcome and 
were ended. But, if overcome for the first set, they were not so for such 
an unexpected crowd.

1 8 79.] Memorials of Francoys d? Bruynne. 85 


By Teu.nis G. Bergen. 

Francoys d'Bruynne (as written by himself) emigrated from Amster- 
dam about 1647, settling at first in New Amsterdam, where, about August 
i7> 1657, he married Catharine Varlet or Verleth, also from Amsterdam. 
After her death he married Anna de Sille, probably a relative of Nicasius 
de Sille. Sept. 4, 1658, he bought of Cornells Steenwyck a house and lot 
at the water (on Pearl St., between the present Broad and Whitehall 
Streets), in New Amsterdam, where he probably resided for several years. 
He also purchased other premises in the city. Nov. 22, 1658, he took the 
Burger oath ; in 1660 his name appears on the lists of church members, 
and Feb. 1, of the same year, he received three votes for Schepen, but 
failed of # an election. His name also appears in numerous suits on the 
records of the Burgomasters and Schepens court ; and from them it may 
be inferred that he was engaged in mercantile pursuits. Dec. 15, 1663, 
he agreed to buy of Nicholas Stillwell. Anthony Jansen from Salee's patent 
and Bouwery of 100 morgens (the conveyance of which bears date Aug. 
24, 1664,) situated mainly within the bounds of New Utrecht, a small por- 
tion being in Gravesend. To these premises he appears to have removed, 
and Jan. 10, 1664, he was appointed one of the Schepens of New Utrecht. 
June 4, 1665, he sold a portion of his purchase, as per Gravesend town 
records, to Jan Jansen ver Rhyn, lying adjoining what is known as De 
Bruynnes lane or the old Bath road, and the main road leading from New 
Utrecht to Gravesend. 

March 18, 167^, De Bruynne agreed to sell the remainder of the Anthony 
Jansen from Salee patent, now designated as Bruynnesburg to Barent 
Joosten of Bushwick, and Jan Hansen, (Van Noostrand,) of the same place, 
for 16,500 guilders ; and Dec. 10, 1675, Anna, his wife, as his attorney (he 
at the time being absent from the country), executed, the conveyance, as 
I per Book 1 of deeds, p. no, in office of Secretary of State at Albany. 
March 7, 1669, "Mr. Francis de Bruynne" and company, obtained a 
license from the Governor, granting them the exclusive privilege of the 
porpoise fishery for oil on the shores of the bay from Coney Island Point 
to " Nayack " Point. 

Aug. 8, 1673, ne was appointed secretary of the five Dutch towns of 
Kings County, and Jan. 1, 1674, Auctioneer of the same towns. During 
his absence, Nicasius de Sille acted in his place. 

April 10, 1676, a pass .was granted by Governor Andross to Anna, wife 
of Francoys de Bruynne and her ten children to sail for London in the 
pink, the Charles of New York, Wm. Richardson, master. 

From this account he appears to have had ten children, although the 
New York Church Records show the baptisms of but three, as set forth by 
Mr. E. R. Purple, on page 35, Vol. X. of The Record. It is probable 
that his wife and family went to join him, he having previously sailed, as 
herein before stated, and this is the last trace seen by the writer of his 

86 The Van Wagencn Family — (First Four Generations.) [April, 

family, unless Joannes de Bruyn, a Major of the New York Militia, who 
figured considerably under Gov. Leisler's administration, was his son. 

De BrQynne is often entered on the records as the " Heer," which prop- 
erly rendered is " Mr.," and which is not a common designation, from 
which it may fairly be inferred that he ranked above the ordinary settlers, 
and belonged to the class who are sometimes designated as gentlemen. 


By Gerrit H. Van Wagenen, Rye, New York. 

First Generation. 

The ancestor of many of the families bearing the name of Van Wagenen 
in Ulster and Dutchess Counties, New York, and in other parts of the State 
was named Aert Jacobsen. He probably came from Wageninge, a town 
near the Rhine, 10 miles West of Arnheim, in Gelderland, as his grand- 
children adopted the name of that town as a family name. 

He was probably the son of Jacob Aertse Wagenaar who came to 
Albany in 1642, with P^vart Pels and others. (O'Callaghan's New Nether- 
lands, Vol. I., p. 440.) 

The Kingston Church records show that Aert Jacobsen died before 1668. 
His wife's name is said to have been Annetje Gerrits. The earliest 
Documentary record of him is in 1653, May 21, when Aert Jacobsen, 
Rutger Jacobsen, Teunis Jacobsen, and Evart Pels took the oath of 
allegiance to the Patroon at Albany. 

Sept. 17, 1660, Aert Jacobsen purchased from Johanna De Laet, wife 
of Jeronimus Ebbinck, a piece of land, lying in the Esopus in New Nether- 
lands, adjoining on the N. E. side the land of Jan Schoon and Aert 
Pieterse Tack, on the N. W. side, Tjerck Claessen (De Witt), S. W. the hill, 
containing 47 morgens and 215 rods. (Pearson's First Settlers of Albany, 
p. 286). 

Aert Jacobsen left his property to his five children, by a will which was 
probably never recorded, as there are on record at Kingston five quit-claim 
deeds executed by his children to each other, all dated Nov. 6, 1710 ; of 
one of which deeds the following is a synopsis : 

"Whereas, Aert Jacobsen, late of Kingston, aforesaid, did by his last will 
and testament, give and bequeath his whole Estate unto his five children, 
the above named Jacob Aertsen. Grietje Elmendorf, Elizabeth Masten, 
Neeltje Aertsen, and Gerrit Aertsen of Kingston aforesaid, and whereas 
they have divided their said Father's farm or Bowery, situated in the limits 
and bounds of the Corporation of Kingston, on the North side of the 
Esopus Creek or Kill, in the great piece, and Lot No. 1 is by said division 
fallen to said Gerrit Aertsen. Now know ye that the said Jacob Aertsen, 
Grietje Elmendorf, Cornells Masten, and Elizabeth his wife, and Arent 
Tynhout for divers good and valid considerations, them thereunto moving, 

1 8 79.] The Van Wagenen Family — (First Four Generations.) S7 

but more especially for the avoiding and putting aside all strife and 
differences that might arise about said farm, have given, granted, etc., to 
the said Gerrit Aertsen all that aforesaid lot No. 1, bounded N. E. by land 
of Teunis Elison and the heirs of Tjerck Claessen De Witt, and the lands 
of the heirs of Jacob Elmendorf, S. by Lot No. 2, belonging to this division 
of said Estate or Bowery, to Grietje Elmendorf, and N. W. by the Great 
Kill, etc., signed, Jacob Aertsen, Grietje Elmendorf, Cornelis Masten, 
Elizabeth + Masten Arent + Tynhout." 
The Children of Aert Jacobsen were : 

1. Neeltje Aertsen, daughter of Aert Jacobsen, deceased, married 
June 6, 1667, Cornelis Aertsen Tynhout (Kingston Ch. record). 

2. Grietje Aertse, daughter of Aert Jacobsen, married Jacobus 
Coenradt Elmendorf, Feb. 28, 1668, with consent of her Mother. Living 
at Wiltwyck. (Kingston Ch. record.) 

3. Elizabeth, married Cornelis Masten. 

4. Jacob Aertsen, born 1652, Feb. 14 (old style) ; married 1677, Feb. 
25, Sara, daughter of Evart Pels, born 1659, July 3d (Bible Record), lived 
at Wagendale ; now Creek Locks, Ulster Co., N. Y. His will, written in 
Dutch, dated Oct. 5, 1715, is recorded at Kingston; he had fifteen 

5. Gerrit Aertsen, married Clara, daughter of Evart Pels. 

Second Generation. 

Gerrit Aertsen, son of Aert Jacobsen and Annetje Gerrits, was 
probably born in Albany; he married Clara, daughter of Evart Pels, 
baptized in N. Y., 165 1, Sept. 10 (N. Y. Ch. records). He was received as 
a member of the Kingston Church about 1666, and in a numerical list of 
members of the same Church made by Dominie Van Gaasbeeck, about 1678, 
Jacob Aertsen and Sara Evertse Pels, his wife, and Gerrit Aertsen and 
Clarissa Evertse Pels, his wife, are numbered 25 to 28. 

The Charter given to the Town of Kingston by Governor Dongan, May 
19, 1687, names Gerrit Aertsen and Jacob Aertsen as two of the trustees. 
His will, written in Dutch, dated Dec. 17, 17 15, proved March 9, i72|-, 
is recorded at Kingston. He provides for his wife Claartie, divides his 
property among his children Evert, Barent, Goosen, Jacob, Symon, Jannetie, 
wife of Barent Van Benthuysen, Annatie, wife of Henricus Heermans, and 
Neeltie, also to Gerrit VanWagenen, only child of his oldest son, deceased, 
Aart Van Wageninge. _ He bequeaths land on Esopus Creek, which he 
received from his father, to his youngest son Symon ; names as executors his 
sons Barent and Goosen. His children were : 

1. Aert, married 1695, Oct. 20, Aaltje Elting. 

2. Evert, baptized 1675. April 18, at Kingston ; married June 1, 1701, 
Marytje Van Heyningen ; had ten children baptized at Kingston. 

3. Barent, bapt. 1675, April 18; married Sept. 28, 1703, Lea Schep- 
moes ; had ten children baptized. 

4. Goosen Van Wagenen, born in Kingston ; married 1 715, June 15, 
Geertruyd Swart, born in Albany but living in Kingston. (Kingston Ch. 

5. Jannetje, baptized 1682, June 25; married 1701, April 21, Barent 
Van Benthuysen, widower of Aaltje Elting. (Ch. record.) 

6. Annetje, baptized 1684, Sept. 7 ; married Hendricus Heermans.

Schepmoes ; had five children. 

9. Neeltje, baptized 1692, April 17. 

10. Rebecca, baptized 1694, Nov. 11. 

Third Generation. 

Aert Gerritsen or Aert Van Wagenen, oldest son of Gerrit Aertsen 
and Clara Pels, was born in Kingston about 1670 ; the exact date is un- 
certain, as his baptism is not on the Ch. records. 

"Oct. 26, 1695, Aert Gerrits, born in Kingston, married Aaltje Elting, 
born in Hurley, both living in Kingston" (Kingston Ch. recorcl). He 
died soon after, as in "April 17, 1699, Barent Van Benthuysen, born in 
Albany, married Aaltje Elting, widow of Aert Gerritse, deceased." Aaltje 
Elting died shortly after, as "Barent Van Benthuysen, widower of Aaltje 
Elting, married April 21, 1701, Jannetje Van Wagenen." Aert Van 
Wagenen and Altje Elting left one child, born 1697, Jan. 23, and named 
Gerrit Van Wagenen. 

Fourth Generation. 

Gerrit Van Wagenen, only child of Aert Van Wagenen and Aaltje 
Elting was born in Kingston, N. Y., Jan. 23, 1697 ; married in N. Y. 17 18, 
Aug. 8, Teuntje, daughter of Huybert Gerritzen (Van Den Berg), and 
Maria Lansing, born Nov. 15, 1695 (Gen. & Biog. Record, Vol. 8, p. 131). 
He moved to New York in 1 732 or 4. Was a school-master. I have a bond 
dated Dec. 1, 1734, given by Jurrian Tappen of Kingston, to " Gerrit Van 
Wagenen of the City of New York, school-master." The late Rev. Dr. 
De Witt informed me that he was Chorister and parochial school-master 
in the Middle Dutch Church, N. Y. 

He died in 1743. H JS Dutch Bible, with the family-record, is in the 
possession of John Veghte of Somerville, N. J. There is a fine portrait of 
him in the family of the late Wm. J. Van Wagenen, of New York. His 
children, all born in Kingston, except the three youngest, born in N. Y., 
were as follows : 

1. Aart, born 1719, Sept. 7; died Oct. 12, 1740. 

2. Gerrit, born 1721, Oct. 29; married Cathryntie Ten Eyck, settled 
in New Jersey ; had four children.

Bard. — (Record, vol. vii., 44. 174). In looking over the minutes of the Vestry of Christ 
Church, Philadelphia, I noted the following — "November 20, 1767. Mr. Sims, one of 
the Managers of the Lottery represented to y e Vestry, that Mr. Craig as Executor of the 
late Dr. Jenney, proposed to Mr. Samuel Bard, who married the Residuary Legatee of 
the late Dr. Jenney, to take out the Debt due to y e late Dr. Jenney, in Lottery Tickets." 
The Dr. Jenney alluded to was the Rev. Robert Jenney, D.D. , Rector of 
Christ Church from 1742, until his death, on the 5th of January, 1762. Dr. Jenney's 
will makes his wife, Jane Elizabeth, residuary legatee. Mrs. Jenney survived her husband 
only a few days, and her will (proved Jan. 15, 1762) devises all her property to "my be- 
loved relation Mary Valleau, who has lived with me as my adopted child near six years," 
and names the Rev. George Craig, executor. These extracts prove the correctness of J. 
M. B.'s suggestion. chas. R. hildeburn. 

Bryant. — In the valuable account of the " Port Royal Smith" family, given by Mr. 
Montgomery, in the January No. of this Magazine, it is said that William Peartree Smith, 
married " Mary, the only daughter of Captain William Bryant of New York." This is 
numerically erroneous. For, as learned from a highly intelligent descendant of this famous 
"ancient mariner" of Colonial New York, two or three years since, and so then stated 
in an historical article, he had at least three daughters, besides the eldest, who became 
Mrs. Smith. Next to her was Martha, who married a Lutheran clergyman by the name 
Nyberg, who was historiographer to the King of Sweden. Shedied a widow, at Fulneck, 
a Moravian establishment near Leeds, in England. Their portraits are in this country. 
Another, Rebecca, married Capt. Le Chevalier Dean, who, in 1 750, lived in Wall Street 
in this city, but, subsequently, settled in Charleston, S. C. The fourth, Elizabeth, 
married the Rev. Benjamin Woodruff, fifty years Presbyterian pastor at Westfield, N. J. 

In the "Colonial Documents of New York," Captain Bryant is spoken of very early in 
the last century, as one of the only two masters of ships trading between New York 

I879-J Notes and Queries. gj 

and London. He is said to have made about one hundred trips to that port during his 
long sea-faring life. He had one son, William, who was a merchant in this city ; another, 
Ebenezer, a lawyer, and one a physician. Joshua, both of whom lived in New Jersey. 
Their father had a brother in London who was a merchant. The family are said to 
have been near akin to that of the learned Jacob Bryant, born in old Plymonth, England, 
and descriptively referred to in one of Miss Hannah More's lively letters, as " Mythology 

Captain William Bryant removed from New York to Perth Amboy, N. J., several 
years before the Revolution. He died in 1772, and his monument is in St. Peter's 
cemetery, in that city. 

Several of the above given facts with other interesting particulars, were received some 
years since, from the lips of the late venerable Mrs. Catharine Boudinot Atterbury, of this 
city, a great grand-daughter of Captain Bryant. W. H.

Duyckinck FAMILY. — Evert Duycking, or Duyckinck, supposed identical with Evert 
son of Evert and Hendrickje (Simons) Duyckinck, was baptized in the Dutch Church, 
N. Y., Oct. 13, 1650; went, when quite young, to Amsterdam, where he married, and 
had two children born, and with whom he returned in 1679, to New York, in the ship 
Charles, belonging to Margaret Philipse, the same vessel which brought over the Labadist 
Missionaries, Jasper Dankers and Peter Sluyter — Duyckinck, acting as mate of the vessel 
1 on that voyage. (Memoirs of the Long Island Historical Society, Vol. 1, p. 30). Who 
' was this wife, and what were the names of the children ? She must have died within a 
few years after this date, for, on the 3d Feb., 1704, he (?) married Elsje Meyer, daughter of 
Andries and Vroutje (Van Vorst) Meyer, by whom he had a son, Evert, baptized May 
12, 1706. ""* .. 

The late Evert A. Duyckinck claimed to be descended from an Evert Duyckinck who 
is said to have settled at Raritan Landing, N. J. The name Evert was such a frequent 
one in this family, and given to so many different persons, all living at the same time, 
that it becomes difficult to distinguish one from the other. About this date, 1679-1680, 
there was an Evert Duycking, called the younger, who mar. Cornelia Jacobs. On the 23d 
August, 16S1, Cornelia Toll, widow of Evert Duycking, was married to Abraham de 
Lanoy, of Harlem. On 21st Dec, 1729, Evert Ducking and Aefje Hardenbroek were 
married in the Dutch Church, N. Y. On 1st April, 1753, Aeltje, widow of Evert 
Ducking, united with the Reformed Dutch Church of New Brunswick, on Confession 
of faith. 

Further information is solicited, which may elucidate the pedigree of this family, partic- 
ularly the line of descent of the late Mr. Duyckinck. L. 

Evetts or Evets. — James Evetts — spelled both ways — "was a civilian of prominence 
in this city, toward the close of the 17 th century, and in good Queen Anne's reign. He 
is mentioned as one of the petitioners for leave to purchase grounds for an English Church 
in New York," March 19, 169^. Subsequently he was an active vestryman t of Trinity 
Church, offered a draught for the pews and gallery of its first structure, and contributed 
funds for " carrying on " the building, as we learn from the vestry records. But, unfor- 
tunately, owing to the loss of the baptismal and burial roll, back of the Revolutionary 
period, as well as to the absence of any gravestone memorial now discoverable or legible, 
we are shut off from all further knowledge of this ancient citizen in this quarter. From 
some circumstantial evidence, however, he is supposed to have been the father of Anna 
Evetts, who married Richard Hall, of New York, and subsequently, Robert Drummond, 
also a Trinity Churchman, and 1712-14, High Sheriff of the city. She had two sisters, 
viz. : Abigail and Sarah. The former married Charles Townley, and the latter Effingham 
Townley ; brothers, and leading citizens of Elizabethtown, N. J. They were sons of 
Col. Richard Townley, who married Mrs. Governor Carteret, and was a member of Lord 
Campbell's Council of the Province of New Jersey in 16S6. 

Evetts, in New York, than that heretofore stated, and particularly any clue to his 
birth-place, or family antecedents or sequents, that may be known to a reader of the 
" N. Y. Genealogical and Biographical Record," and given to its columns, will be thank- 
fully hailed by the writer of these paragraphs. Evett's civil business in 1702, was that of

residence was Crown Street, for which property is recorded a quit deed, in 1693, to 
"James Evetts, Gentleman." In the earliest French war, about the period of the burn- 
ing of Schenectady, he was an army officer of high rank. WILLIAM HALL.

years gathering his materials. He proposed to publish in 1S59, but had not sufficient en- 
couragement. No one before him had made such a collection, and the time taken has 
resulted in a work unusually well prepared, simple in arrangement, with only one number 
to a name, and embracing 7,333 names, with many tables, addenda et errata. The index 
is in four parts; the first is of the Christian names of the Nobles, inserting the names of 
all, with dates of birth for distinction; the second is of the descendants bearing other 
surnames ; the third, of persons who have married Nobles, or descendants of Nobles ; 
and the fourth, of persons incidentally mentioned. This old peerage family is largely 
composed of mechanics and farmers, and of pioneer settlers, spread all over the country, 
embracing many soldiers and 90 college graduates. It has a few photographs. More 
' are invited, with corrections and additions. An additional volume, after time taken for 
it, will be appropriate. The work is generally exact and terse, but has a few well written 
biographies. Nothing more need be said in its praise. M.

The writer published and distributed gratuitously a pamphlet of 29 pages, by which he 
obtained additional information and secured material for the present more full and per- 
manent account. That is one of the best methods for obtaining materials. He produces 
now a commendable book, with careful indices, which every member of the family must 
desire, for preservation and use, and which aids our understanding of history. The In- 
dex of "other surnames" on 6 pages will favor other families. His table of Dutch 
Christian names, with their English equivalents, is more full than can probably be else- 
where found. Several have attempted it, and there is some disagreement between them ; 
but this may be a convenient addition. M.

Read before the New York Gene ^logical and Biographical Society, Feb- 
ruary 5, 1879, by Charles B. Moore. 

( With Portrait etched by H. B. Hall.) 

Edwin Ruthven Purple, the third son of Lyman S. Purple, was born in 
the town of Sherburne, in the county of Chenango, New York, on the 30th 
of June, 1831. His maternal grandfather, James (Fones) Sheffield, was of 
the medical profession, and led his brother Samuel to that study and prac- 
tice. His paternal grandfather was named Ansel, and his earlier paternal 
ancestors for several generations named Edward, and of English descent. 

After the death of his father, which occurred May 7, 1839, and before 
he was eight years old, he was placed by his mother and elder brother at 
school in Earlville, Madison County, where he continued until the spring 
of 1846. In the summer of that and the following year he was employed 
at farm labor, living at home during the winter months, and attending the 
Earlville Academy — deemed at that time one of the best and most nourish- 
ing high schools in the county. To the farm-life of these two growing 
years he doubtless was much indebted for a vigorous physical development 
and a farmer's capacity for endurance. It made him familiar with hard 
labor, and prepared him to encounter unflinchingly the rough experiences 
of the life he afterward led in California and the extreme western terri- 

In March, 1847, under the auspices of his brother Samuel, he came to 
our city and secured employment as a clerk in the dry goods importing 
house of Joseph Tryon, 56 Broad street. Here he remained about three 
years, until the spring of 1850, and acquired some of the social advantages, 
the versatility and mental activity, or readiness, which may be gathered in 
such a position. 

In 1848 he joined the Laight Street Baptist Church, to which his family 
had belonged, and to which he remained attached while in the city. 


102 A Biographical Sketch of Edwin R. Purple. [J u ty> 

In 1850 Mr. Tryon arranged to close his business in New York and 
establish himself in San Francisco, California — the land of great promise 
or "reat attraction — and made such favorable overtures t'o the ardent young 
man as induced him, with his mother's and brother's consent, to follow 
Mr. Tryon and accompany some merchandise to that El Dorado. 

He left New York April 13, 1850, on the steamship Cherokee, for 
Chagres, and went thence to Panama, where he took a sailing vessel (the 
bark Winthrop, Captain Moore — not harmonious names) for San Fran- 
cisco, and he arrived there on the 12th of July following, taking up three 
months, instead of a six months' passage around Cape Horn or the 
modern ten days 1 ride, for his whole voyage. 

On arrival he found Mr. Tryon, who preceded him, had sold the 
stock of merchandise to arrive, and had abandoned the idea of setting up 
business for himself, and was unable to give employment. It was easier to 
sell goods at a profit than to secure a store at a moderate rent, or have any 
assurance against disaster. He had to be left to Try-on something else. 

Remaining in San Francisco a few days, Mr. Purple went to Sacramento 
City, nearer the mining region, and, through the introduction of a friend, he 
hired an ox-team and wagon, loaded it with flour and other provisions, and 
started on a trading tour across the Sierra Nevada mountain range, to 
meet the incoming emigrants, who were marching by land across the 
plains. He was a trader, and, of course, an adventurer. 

This expedition proved a successful one, and was sufficiently romantic 
to be attractive to the adventurous. Soon after his return to Sacramento, 
late in August, 1850, the cholera broke out there, and for many days the 
principal business houses and public places of that city were closed, and 
the streets nearly deserted. 

On this calamitous account he left for San Francisco, and thence went 
to Stockton, where, in December, 1850, he fell back to his former quiet 
.position, and obtained a clerkship in the store of Seneca Dean, formerly of 
Orange County, in this State. There were many in that region from our 
Empire, and among strangers there is some congeniality for citizens of the 
same State on meeting each other. 

In Feb., 185 1, he commenced mining at Carson's Creek and Murphy's 
Camp,* in Calaveras County, and in October of that year formed a 
copartnership with Edwin T. Lake, an old trader in mining supplies, on 
the north branch of the Calaveras River, and he remained nearly two 
years in that business. 

In the fall of 1853 he dissolved copartnership with Mr. Lake, expecting 
to return to New York, but was detained longer than anticipated in the set- 
tlement of his affairs. His attention was directed to the importance of the 
law in order to collect debts and preserve the peace — not less apparent 
in wild regions than elsewhere, where many of the lawless may congregate ; 
nor, indeed, less with old traders than others, when quick returns are sought 
by all, and many hazards happen. 

He commenced the study of law in the office of William Jeff. Gatewood, 
of San Andreas, two miles from North Branch. His practical observance 
of its rules as an accountant probably made the study of law as a science 
less difficult. He had not many statutes to read, nor many California!!

In September, 1854, he was elected one of the justices in the Fifth 
Township, then one of the most populous in Calaveras County. This 
court had general jurisdiction as to mining claims, and in other actions to 
an amount not exceeding $500. The business, both civil and criminal, 
was large, and during his term was increased by the disability of Judge 
Spencer, the other township justice. His mind and talents, to say nothing 
of his patience, were fully exercised. 

The next year, in the fall of 1855, ne was elected one of the three super- 
visors of Calaveras County, and he served in that capacity one year. In 
both positions he had some opportunities to learn wisdom and prudence. 
In November, 1855, he was admitted to practice as an attorney at law 
in the county courts of Calaveras County, but did not find the practice 
very attractive. A profession is a very different thing from a trade. 
From 1855 to i860 he was one of the nine proprietors, and was the secre- 
tary and treasurer of the San Antonio Ridge Ditch and Mining Company. 
In addition to supplying water for mining and agricultural purposes in the 
central portion of Calaveras County, this company was extensively en- 
gaged in the manufacture and sale of lumber for that region. His services 
were chiefly clerical and financial. Five years soon fled. 

In May, i860, he removed to Fort Yuma, California, where he was 
employed as financial agent of the Butterfield Overland Mail Company, 
until the mail service between St. Louis and San Francisco on the southern 
route was discontinued in April, 1861, and until our civil war was breaking 
out. At that date, a contract having been made by the company with 
the government to carry a daily overland mail between St. Joseph's, 
Missouri, and Placerville, California, commencing July 1, 1861, the stock 
and stages of the company from Tucson in Arizona to Los Angeles in 
California were ordered to the new route between Placerville and Great 
Salt Lake City. On May 8, 1861, in charge of 130 horses and 18 
stage coaches, with 30 men, Mr. Purple left Los Angeles for Salt Lake 
City, where he arrived, without the loss of an animal, on the 16th of June ; 
the distance being about 800 miles, and half of it through a desert country, 
inhabited only by roving bands of Indians. He remained at Salt Lake 
as the agent of the overland company the first year of our civil war, until 
June, 186 1, and then left there with a small company, principally old 
Californian acquaintances, for the Salmon River gold diggings, away from 
the sound of war, in Oregon. With heavy wagons loaded with supplies 
and drawn by oxen, they were compelled to " drag their slow length 
along," and had abundant opportunity for reflection and to observe the 
landscape views of this wild region. The unusual falls of rain that season 
along the route retarded progress, shut off some of the scenes, and greatly 
increased the difficulty and labor of crossing the mountain streams. On 
July 30th they reached the Beaver Head, the main stream of the Jeffer- 
son Fork of the Missouri River* (not far from the hot spring), which they 
with skilful eyes prospected for gold. Not finding the precious metal in 
paying quantities, they pushed on north to a creek called Gold Creek, in 
Deer Lodge Valleyf (where there were also hot springs), and where they 
arrived on August 7th. There they abandoned the plan of going farther 
west over the mountain ridge to the Salmon River mines, being already 
opposite Washington Territory, or nearly so, and, owing to the shortness of

the season and their being so far north, prepared to go into winter quarters. 
After leaving the Beaver Head they met John White and others, a party 
of seven men, on their way from Deer Lodge to Willard's Creek (a tributary 
of the Beaver Head) for the purpose of prospecting it for gold. And they 
soon took that direction, having needed supplies for miners. These were 
undoubtedly the first white men that found gold in Willard's Creek (or 
Grasshopper, as it was called by them), till then a mountain wilderness, the 
discovery of which filled that country with at least 15,000 inhabitants in the 
spring and summer following. They contended with the rocks for subsist- 
ence and for wealth, and not with each other in arms, and, finding other rich 
placers in that region, fixed the status of Montana as one of the richest and 
most valuable of the western gold and silver producing territories. 

In December, 1862, Mr. Purple opened a store at Bannock City,* 
where these new discoveries of gold were made, the stock in trade of which 
he had charge (owned by himself and others) consisting principally of 
provisions and mining utensils, which had been brought with him on the 
long and difficult journey from Salt Lake City. 

Spending one year in disposing of these, in December, 1863, he left the 
Territory of Montana for New York, where he arrived in February, 1864, 
after an absence from his native State of nearly fourteen years, but not a 
wealthy man, not laden with gold. He had improved his means and 
acquired some interest in mining property. 

At New York he entered into a business connection with the Ex- 
Governor of Winconsin, James Duane Doty, and with Charles M. Davis, 
Esq., for the sale of mining property, in which they were mutually 
interested in Montana ; and in April, 1864, he left again for that territory, 
but was taken seriously sick, had to send far for a doctor, and returned 
in December following to New York. His many exposures had impaired 
his health. 

Since that time he has resided with his brother in New York City, with 
the exception of two summers spent in Kansas, where he was engaged in 
purchasing cattle and wagons for the transportation of mining machinery 
and supplies to Montana Territory, again changing climate and food, and 
again straining his endurance. 

After experiencing so much of an opposite character, he became a 
member of our N. Y. Gene. & Biog. Society the first year of its exist- 
ence. His name was printed, with his brother's, in the list of resident 
members on the cover of our magazine, published in January, 1870. But 
as a member he was very quiet and sedate. 

On Dec. 10, 1870, he read before the Society extracts from the MS. 
autobiography of William Gowans, the antiquarian bookseller and publisher, 
known to be an intimate acquaintance and friend of his brother, and 
then recently deceased. These extracts have not been published, nor the 
autobiography, to our knowledge, as it ought to have been. 

On May 13, 1871, he read a paper on the Biography of Cadwallader 
Colden, our early Governor, Doctor, and Philosopher. His brother, with 
his assistance, was known to have made extensive inquiries and collec- 
tions on the subject, and this paper was stated (N. Y. Gene. & Biog. 
Record, Vol. 2, p. 157) to have been prepared by him.

any office. He, however, did endeavor to aid Mr. Seth Hastings Grant, 
who remained our Librarian after he was deeply engaged in other affairs, 
and could give us little attention. He assisted in the early attempt to 
plan and prepare a catalogue. His slips containing the duly arranged 
titles of many of the books, it is hoped, have been preserved. He 
gradually acquired an interest in and a taste for family history. And 
his brother having his time much engaged in the absorbing duties of 
his profession, he took up the Golden papers, and prepared for the 
Record the "Notes Biographical and Genealogical of the Colden Family, 
and some of its Collateral Branches in America" which were published 
in the Record for October, 1873, m Vol. 4, pp. 161 — 180. They were, 
perhaps, kept back too long, to give place to others less important and 
less attractive ; but during the delay they were extended by improved 
notes. Reading the list of authorities cited or materials from which 
the notes were derived (pp. 182, 183), we can see that if he looked over 
these works he had a fine chance to study, not only the facts for which he 
was in pursuit as a judge, but the laws of the science itself, of which he 
was becoming an expert. And some of us know, too, that nothing is 
more interesting for a man to read than his own lucubrations in print. 
An edition of fifty copies, in book form, of these notes was privately 
printed in 1873. 

The next number of the Record (Vol. 6, p. 1) contained an elaborate 
Biographical and Genealogical Sketch of David Provoost of Neu Amsterdam 
and some of his Descendants, more thoroughly original. It was a compi- 
lation, with the particular authorities for each part cited in notes. So 
many have read it with gratification, and so few errors are heard of, that 
nothing more need be said of it, except that this also was postponed. 
An edition of one hundred copies of this article, in book form, was 
privately printed in 1875. 

Mr. Purple's health was failing, but he was now fairly at work, and his 
u Contributions to the History of the Ancient Families of New York" 
followed. In April, 1876 (Vol. 7, p. 49) appeared the first four genera- 
tions of the Stille, Woretendyk, Somerendyk families, and p. 57 of 
the Siecken, alias Dey family, and pp. 60, 61 of the Grevenraet and De 
Reimer families. In July (p. 117), of Wouterszen Van Breestede, of Peter- 
sen Van Alcmaer, of Santvoort, Echerson, Sammans, Stridles, Wanshaer, 
the sailor, and of Elsje Tymens^cfau. in-law of Govert Lockermans, 
and wife of Vanderveen. In October, p. 146, the first three generations 
of the Leisler family, correcting many previous errors, and with a 
note embracing the De Kleyn family. An edition of seventy-five copies 
in book form was privately printed in 1S77, with the following title : 
Genealogical Notes Relating to Lieut. Gov. Jacob Leisler and his Family 
Connections in New York. In Jan., 1877 (Vol. 8, pp. n- 16), the Loocker- 
mans and Va'ricks ; in April, p. 67, and July, p. 124, the Kip family 
(much more full and exact than any we had before, with two corrections 
of others, pp. 91, 92). An edition of seventy-five copies in book form 
was privately printed in 1877 with the following title: " Contributions to 
the History \of the Kip Family ofNetv York and New Jersey." 

In April, 1878 (Vol. 9, p. 52), the Van Dyck family, the Varleth and 
Hermance families, with various connections, such as Brockholst, French 
and Philipse, Teller, Schuyler, Bayard, and others ; continued in July, p. 1 13, 
and in October, p. 133, with one or two corrections, p. 192 ; and again in 

106 A Biographical Sketch of Echo in R. Purple. [Ju 1 )', 

January, 1879; together with his list of Dutch aliases, very curious. These, 
with numerous and important additions, will hereafter appear in book form, 
possibly during the present year. 

No reader of these will needs give any praise of them, and others had bet- 
ter read them than listen to any comments of ours. Several of them were 
printed when he was seriously sick, but they generally had his careful 
corrections ; if not, there was an excellent substitute. 

It need not be said — it is not to be supposed — that all he has written has 
been published. We have yet no genealogy printed of the Purple family, 
from which in MSS. we have been permitted to gather a part of his 
personal history. To him are we repeatedly indebted for the laborious 
indexes for our publication, the Record, and in other ways. 

His death occurred on the 20th of January last, and his burial on the day 
of our second meeting in the same month deprived those who attended his 
sad funeral of such courageous elasticity of mind as they sometimes display. 

He was only 47 years of age, but his travels and labors are ended. His 
style, like that of a dry genealogist, was as free from surplusage, embellish- 
ment, or ornament, as that of an accountant's ledger. He had to say some- 
thing biographical, but no one would discover by what he said that he had 
travelled as far as Sir James Mandeville, or as far as Lawrence Sterne, or 
that he had ever visited California. His notes of travels are preserved, 
and they are both interesting and important. He had not travelled so far 
as John Ledyard or Bayard Taylor, nor much out of his own country. But, 
although by old decree for subduing and ruling the earth, man can endure 
greater diversities of climate and food than any other animal, his human 
powers are doubtless wisely checked and limited. He wrote about such a 
character as Jacob Leisler, so that few, whether friendly or hostile, had any 
reply or complaint ; yet in his writings there are exhibitions of depth and 
strength of thought and sentiment deserving of particular notice. 

So recently as Feb. 13, 1868, he married Mary Frances, daughter of 
Charles Hawley and of Mary Van Antwerp (Lynch) Close of New York. 
She was born Dec. 26, 1847. Five children were born to them — three 
survive, all daughters. 

His wife's descent was brought out briefly in the Kip Genealogy, and 
this was written when his little child was fatally sick.. The dedication of 
it, as separately printed, was to the memory of this child as follows :

Huybert died Jan. 25, 1806, and was buried in the family vault outside 
of St. George's Chapel, in Beekman Street, whence, March 12, 1866, his 
remains were removed to Greenwood Cemetery, Brooklyn. 

He was for a time schoolmaster and chorister in connection with the 
Dutch Church in New York, as the following extract from the " History of 
the schools of the Refd. Dutch Ch.," page 58, will show : " 1743, Nov. 

Io8 The Van Wagenen Family. [J ul )'> 

21 st , the Trustees of the Dutch Church directed Mr. Abraham De Lanoy 
to present the names of ten children of poor parents (who lived at too 
great a distance, particularly in winter, to come to the school of Mr. Huy- 
bert Van Wagenen) to the Deacons in writing. Mr. De Lanoy for in- 
structing them shall receive the same amount of money and firewood 
which Mr. Van Wagenen received for the same number. Mr. Van Wage- 
nen shall attend to the catechetical instruction of the children in the Old 
Church" (Garden Street). In 1746 the Consistory " resolved that there 
should be appropriated to Mr. Van Wagenen, in addition to the sum pledged 
to him for instructing the children, Ten pounds, New Vork Currency, for 
one year, on condition that he should officiate as Chorister, alternately in 
the Old and New Church, as shall be directed." 

Mr. Van W T agenen resigned his school in 1748 — it was in the vicinity of 
Marketfield and Broad Streets, New York. He resided, from about 1705 
till his death, in 1806, at No. 5 Beekman Slip (now $■$ Fulton Street), 
where he established a hardware business quite extensive for those times, 
and which Avas continued after his death by his sons and grandsons till 
about 1830, when they were succeeded by others, so that the same busi- 
ness is yet carried on at the same site where it has been for over one hun- 
dred years. 

In 176711c signed the remonstrance to the Consistory of the Dutch 
Church against the Rev. Dr. Laidlie preaching in English in the Dutch 
Church. The remonstrance failing, he withdrew and joined the English 
Church. He was a vestryman of Trinity Church from 1787 to 1806.

He was a vestryman of Trinity Church from 1808-1811. 

In 1S11 arrangements were made for a separation between the congre- 
gation of St. George's and the corporation of Trinity Church, after which 
the former was organized as a separate parish. The first wardens elected 
after the organization were Gerrit H. Van Wagenen and Henry Peters. 
The fine glass chandeliers which hung in the church, and which were 
among the few articles saved when the church was burned in 1 814, are 
now in St. Paul's Church, Oxford, N. Y., having been presented to that 
Ch. in 1866.

A Regular Meeting of the New York Genealogical and Biographical Society was held 
at No. 64 Madison Avenue, on Wednesday evening, 22d January, at eight o'clock. 

The following members were present : Gen. Geo. S. Greene, Charles 13. Moore, Esq., 
Edward F. de Lancey, Esq., Win. F. Holcombe, M.D., A. Norton Brockway, Ml)., 
John Shrady, M.D., Ellsworth Eliot, ML)., Gerrit H. Van Wagenen, Esq., Edmund 
Abdy Hurry, Esq., Henry T. Drowne, Esq., David Parsons Holton. M.D., Win. R em- 
sen Mulford, Esq., Saml. Burhans, Jr., Esq., Joseph O. Brown, Esq., and Rufus King, 

Minutes of the previous meeting were read and adopted. 

Mr. Moore reported the gifts of several books and pamphlets fo the Society. 

The election of three Trustees being in order, Mr. King announced that due notice 
thereof had been given by him in the New York and Brooklyn daily papers. 

The following gentlemen were then unanimously re-elected for the term of three years : 
Samuel S. Purple, Edward F. de Lancey, Joseph O. Brown. 

Mr. Moore alluded to the death (January 20th) of our esteemed member, Edwin R. 
Purple, and moved that an obituary notice be prepared for the next number of the RECORD. 

The motion was carried, and Messrs. Moore, Drowne, and Hurry were appointed a 
committee to prepare such notice. 

Mr. Moore, on behalf of the Committee on Biographical Bibliography, read the fol- 


To the New York Genealogical and Biographical Society : 

The Committee on Biographical Bibliography respectfully report that their work has 
steadily but slowly progressed during the past year. 

The number of volumes now on their list relating to persons of the Colony and State 
of New York is 1,177, the number added during^ the past year being 42. And 
during the year thirty-eight volumes have been carefully examined, and the principal 
names placed on the indexes of the centuries to which they belong. 

Some of these, such as the Pioneers of Utica and the History of Orange County, have 
placed on the indexes a large number of new names. 

The names indexed have become so numerous that the labor of counting them would 
divert too much time from the more interesting and more important duty of adding to 
their number by examining a large pile of books yet remaining to be indexed. 

Although it is felt to be a rather lonely exercise, it is believed to be of increasing value, 
and the regret at not having more assistance is chiefly occasioned by the other less at- 
tractive engagements, which so much shorten the time that can be devoted to this form 
of improvement in knowledge and in the means of ready access to it. 

Respectfully submitted, 
(Signed) Charles B. Moore, 

David P. Holton.

Van Vechten. — (Answer to Query, vol. ix. , p. 95.) — Dirk Teunise Van Vechten, of 
Catskill [m 1 Jannetje Michielse Vrelant, d d Nov. 25, 1702], had eleven children. Of 
these, Michiel and Abraham went to New Jersey and settled upon or near the Raritan. 
Abraham died childless. Michiel [b. Nov. 2S, 1663, m. (1), Nov. 21, 1686, Marytje 

Parker; (2), Ap 1 2, 1691, Jannetje Dumont, d. . Will dat d May 20, 1734] had by 

his second wife two children. Of these, Dirk was born July 15, 1699, m. (I), Judith, 
d 1 Capt. Anthony Brockhols ; (2), Nov. 2, 1719, Debora or Barbara Antonidas ; (3),

he did, his last child was born when he was seventy years old. H. B.

they moved to Philadelphia. There were six daughters, one of whom, Margaret, m. 
Captain John Macpherson, of Mount Pleasant, Philadelphia (afterward Benedict Ar- 
nold's residence), and was the mother of Major John Macpherson, Jr., Montgomery's 
aid, who fell with himat Quebec, 31st Dec, 1775 ; of General William, whose memoir is 
found in Simpson's Lives of Eminent Philadelphians ; and of Margaret, who m. Hon. 
John Berrien, of Rocky Hill, New Jersey. What were the names of the other sisters, 
and if married, when, etc., etc. ? Dr. Miller, in his Memoirs of the Rev. John Rodger s, 
D.D., New York, 1813, makes but one reference to the parents and their children, and 
does not name the six daughters. Can we have more of their genealogy? T. H. M. 

Answer. — Our esteemed correspondent will find in N. E. Historical and Genealogical 
Register, vol. x., p. 352, some material for a history of the family of Thomas Rodgers 
and Elizabeth Baxter Rodgers, the parents of our distinguished divine. — Pub. Commt. 

Tilley. — R. H. Tilley, of Boston, Mass., writes from Newport, R. I., under date of 
May 31, 1879: "I have issued the first edition of the Genealogy of the Tilley family, 
hoping by its publication to be able to find out the time of arrival in this country 
(Boston) of the brothers, William, John, and James Tilley, who came from Edford, Dev- 
onshire Co., England, to work for their cousin William, a ropemaker in Boston. He 
died 1 71 7. William, the ropemaker, came about 1660. His widow married Tudge 
Samuel Sevvall, of Boston, in 1719. William, the oldest of the three brothers, settled in 
Newport, R. I. ; after the death of his cousin, the ropemaker, John settled in New York, 
and James in New London, Conn. The descendants of William are found mostly in New 
England, while some of those of John are in New Brunswick and Canada. Should you 
be able to assist me, I will feel very thankful. 


The Heraldry and Exterior Decorations of the Bar Gate : being a paper 
read at a monthly meeting of the Literary and Philosophical Society of Southamp- 
ton, in November, 1S75. By B. W. Greenfield, Barrister-at-law. 4to, pp. 30, 
with embellishments. 
The various directions in which quaint antiquarianism will pursue and detect curiosi- 
ties, as well as historical knowledge, are exhibited in this brochure. The members of 
parliament chosen for the borough of Southampton, in England, and some other great 
men, had their coats of arms set up at the barred gate, one after another, until the older 
became difficult to decipher ; and to this we now owe a historical sketch of several, with 
colored copies of the arms of St. George and St. Andrew, Tylney, Fleming, Paulet, 
Wyndham, Noel, Newland, Cardonnel, Leigh, and Mill. The corrections claimed of 
errors in previous histories exhibit the defects or difficulties in tracing families by coat 
armor. The most curious one is that of Adam de Cardonnel, Military Secretary of the 
Duke of Marlborough, who became M. P. and Secretary at War. The printed copy 
for our Society contains a MSS. pedigree of interest, with extracts, and a list of 
authorities, many of which it may be difficult to find in this country. The orator gives 
de Cardonnel as "an illustration of the evanescence of worldly fame," but proves also 
his motto, " Non omnis moriar." Some Americaa names appear, and one of interest is 
that of Robert Richbell, mayor in 1671, whose brother John figured in New York, on 
Long Island and in Westchester County. M. 

The Whitney Family of Connecticut and its Affiliations : Being an At- 
tempt to Trace the Descendants, as well in the Female as the 
Male Lines of Henry Whitney, from 1649 to 187S ; to which is pre- 
fixed some Account of the Whitneys of England. By S. Whitney 
PH02NLX. [Motto.] New York : Privately printed. 1878. 3 vols. 4to, pp. 2,740. 
The rapid production of town and family histories in all sections of our extended 
country challenges the attention of every intelligent observer. The diligent and careful 
antiquarian pains generally taken by their respective authors, to render their works both 
entertaining and instructive, are deserving of particular notice. All thoughtful cultivators 
of the field of American history must have noticed ere this the remarkable progress made 
of late in that department of history which it is the province of the Record to encourage. 
In no age and in no country have such definite and substantial results been attained in 
genealogy as in this. That these results are attributable to a growing prevalence of a

mistaken pride of family, no well-informed person for one moment can believe. That 
selfish spirit lost its vitality in the struggles that consummated American independ- 
ence. It is clearly and unmistakably due to the prevalence among the people of an 
infallible belief in the truth of the Declaration of Independence, that all men are created 
equal — all are well-born — and to the healthy growth of a substantial historical spirit ; 
possibly in part, also, to the adoption by us of a more definite and accurate system of 
recording historical, biographical, and genealogical facts — thus placing at the disposal of 
American historians the materials which give life, power, and personal interest to the dry 
details of their intellectual productions. These thoughts have crowded upon our minds 
as we opened the three magnificent quarto volumes whose title we have given above. 

The name of Henry Whitney, the emigrant, and progenitor of the Whitney Family 
traced in these volumes, first appears in America in the town records of Southold, Long 
Island, Sth October, 1649, at which time he enters into an agreement with three neighbors, 
William Salmon, Edward Tredwell, and Thomas Benidick, for mutual approval of such 
a neighbor (in case of removal or sale of property) as the other inhabitants living with 
him should approve of. From this date to 1S78 his descendants, both male and female, 
are traced, and particulars given of twenty thousand three hundred and sixty-one per- 
sons. The indefatigable author has spent more than ten years in the preparation of this 
stupendous work. He has been assisted for nearly five years by that accurate and in- 
telligent expert in genealogy, D. Williams Patterson, now of Newark Valley, N. Y. ; 
by John A. Boutelle, Esq., of Woburn, Mass. ; and also by Mrs. H. A. De Sabs (nee 
Bainbridge, of London, the latter in furnishing the English pedigree of Henry Whitney 
the emigrant. The introduction to the first volume gives the " Whitneys of England." 
A most important and time-saving feature in this elaborate work is the numerous 
tabular pedigrees, in text and folding sheets, which it contains. Another truly excellent 
feature is the use of heavy-faced type in recording the names of principals ; this at once en- 
ables the reader's eye to catch the names of father and mother when being sought for. 
The notation is convenient, and, if we mistake not, peculiar to the author. The edition 
printed was five hundred quarto and ten folio copies — all for presentation. 

Of Mr. Phcenix's labors in the field of family history, we had a pleasing foretaste in 
1S67, in his interesting volume entitled " The Descendants of John Phoinix, an early 
Settler in Kittery, Maine,' 1 '' and we are more than pleased to learn (p. 342) that the 
genealogy of the family of Alexander Phoenix, ••the first emigrant, born in England in 
1643, is ready for publication. This monument which the modest author has erected to 
the memory of Henry Whitney, o( Long Island, and his descendants, dedicated "To 
the dear memory of my beloved mother," is far more durable than brass or marble — 
recording deeds of honor and humanity — and commends itself to the American people as 
an example worthy of all imitation. 

The following is a list of the principal families beside the Whitney contained in the 
work : — Abbott, Adams, Alexander, Allen, Andrews, Armstrong, Bailey, Baker, Bangs, 
Barlow, Barnum, Bates, Beardsley, Beers, Benedict, Bennett, Betts, Boland, Bouton,

Vol. X. NEW YORK, OCTOBER, 1879. No. 4. 


By Charles B. Moore. 

(Continued from p. 76 of The Record.) 

It is apparent that the publication of William Wood's work especially 
affected particular classes in England, including fishermen. To prove this, 
some who have not read the book may like to read a few brief quotations 
from it ; others will not object. He wrote about Massachusetts and said : 
" Salem stands on the middle of a necke of land very pleasantly ; having 
a South river on the one side, and a North river on the other side. Upon 
this necke, where most of the houses stand, is very bad and sandie ground. 
Yet for seaven years together it hath brought forth exceeding good corne 
by being fished but every third year. In some places is very good ground ; 
and very good timber, and divers springs hard by the sea side. Here like- 
wise is store of fish, as basses, eeles, lobsters, clammes," &c. " Although 
their land be none of the best, yet beyond those rivers is a very good soyle, 
where they have taken farms and get their hay, and plant their corne. 
There they crosse these rivers with small cannowes, which are made of 
whole pine trees, being about two foot and a half over, and 20 foot long. 
In these likewise, they goe a fowling, sometimes two leagues to sea. 
There be more cannowes in this towne than in all the whole patent;- every 
household having a water-house or two. This towne hath two good har- 
bors, the one being called winter, and the other summer harbor, which 
lieth within Derbie's fort; which place, if it were well fortified, might keep 
shippes from landing of forces in any of those two places." 

He next wrote of what we call Marblehead, and said : " Marvill Head 
is a place which lieth 4 miles full south from Salem, and is a very conve- 
nient place for a plantation, especially for such as will set upon the trade of 
fishing. There was made here a ship's loading of fish, the last year, where 
still stand the stages and drying scaffolds. Here be good harbor for boats, 
and safe riding for shippes." 

And thus he wrote various details about different places. It would be a 
trespass to copy too largely. But a part of his reference to modern Ips- 

I SO Shipwrights, Fishermen and Passengers from England. [Oct., 

wich may be added : " Agowamme is 9 miles to the north from Salem ; 
which is one of the mostspatious places for plantation, being near the sea," 
&c, &c. — " the best place but one, which is Merrimacke, lying 8 miles 
beyond it," &c, &c. "These two places may containe twice as many 
people as are yet in New England ; there being as yet scarce any inhab- 
itants in these two places." 

There is a temptation to write descriptive sketches of the settlements in 
Massachusetts, and especially of Salem, to enforce views about shipwrights 
and fishermen, and the crowd of passengers from England. The facts are 
within reach of the diligent reader and student. The rules or practices 
adopted there were to some extent imported into New York, and became 
a part of its history. Ancient Southwold and Great Yarmouth in Eng- 
land had their Dutch settlers and Dutch merchants. Their vessels traded 
with Holland. "The Netherlands" had been "the centre of European 
trade." Of course William Wood's book went to Holland. And not only 
New Amsterdam, now New York, had its North River and South River, 
but Sterling in Southold, L. I., had the same, and its winter harbor. In 
many circumstances the arrangements in each town in Massachusetts 
were like those of the manors and manor courts of England. The labor- 
ing men had no deeds for the parcels of land allotted to them, which they 
supposed they owned. They had nothing to show their title but a copy of 
the town record, or c'ourt roll, like the copy-hold tenants of England. By 
mere order their land could be reached. Deeds and wills, in brief and 
imperfect forms, were used to transfer their plots. But the Town Court 
would decide how far these should be effective. They had no reliable free- 
hold upon which an occupant could defend himself against an unfriendly 
majority, or against a chief in power. But in the subsequent struggle with 
Edmund Randolph, the occupants, being voters and numerous, were gen- 
erally successful in maintaining their possessions (see Lewis's Lynn, 175). 

The fur-trade, which had been at first the principal support of the small 
and scattered settlements, disappeared from the regions where there were 
many settlers. The beaver and other wild animals were either destroyed 
or fled. Fishing came next, before agriculture was productive. Salem 
derived its greatest prosperity from fishing and from ship-building. Among 
others, William Stevens, shipwright, and John Pickering, carpenter, who 
had sailed from England for St. Christopher, soon appeared at Salem. 
The account of passengers from England must be proceeded with. 

In 1636 "divers ships, both out of the Downs and from Holland," as 
reported, arrived in New England in five weeks. {Winthrop's Journal.) 
Neither their names nor their passengers were regularly reported. Prob- 
ably the Love was one. Some came with cattle, provisions, and supplies. 
There was " the Rebecca," from Bermuda ; the Charity, of Dartsmouth ; 
a ship of Barnstable ; another from Bristol. There were " fifteen great 
ships" in Boston Harbor. One vessel, "the St. Patrick," Palmer, Mas- 
ter, arrived from Ireland at Boston. The senior Winthrop, as magistrate 
for life, was judicially in power, but not approved by the majority, for 
Governor. He had friendly feelings towards Ireland, and was willing to 
secure the favor of persons in power in England. He noted this vessel as 
coming 15th May, 1636, and as belonging to Sir Thomas Wentworth, 
afterwards created Earl of Strafford, then Lord Lieutenant of Ireland. 
(1 Winth. Journ. by Savage, mar., p. 186.) Wentworth had become well 
known when seeking popularity in England as M.P. Afterwards taking 

1879-] Shipwrights, Fishermen and Passengers from England. \z\ 

high office, he showed extreme devotion to the king. The vessel doubt- 
less was from his government, and he took an interest in the voyage. 
This we can readily understand. As to any private ownership, we are 
ignorant and incredulous. All the politicians of the day were paying 
great attention to the strange rush of passengers (with clergymen) to the 
new settlements. Wentworth mocked the Puritans, and rejoiced at the 
repeal of the Virginia charter (Neill, 417). He was hand and glove with 
Laud. Some Irishmen appeared in New England, some came from Vir- 

A stir was made at Boston about defacing the king's flag, and not hoist- 
ing the king's colors, manifestly the manoeuvre of some politicians to op- 
pose others, or to gain notoriety and political favor. The Irish ship did 
not lower her flag to salute the flag on Castle Island, in Boston Harbor. 
The lieutenant of the fort boarded the vessel, and " made her strike her 
flag" — a rough course towards a national vessel. The master, Palmer, 
complained of this to the Boston magistrates (z. e., to VVinthrop), who re- 
quired the lieutenant of the castle to acknowledge his error, "lest the 
Lord Deputy" (of Ireland, Wentworth) "should be informed," etc. The 
master's mate of the ship Hector, Thomas Millard, then at Boston, said 
publicly (as Winthrop writes), " because we had not the king's colors at 
our port, we were all traitors and rebels," etc. This mate was brought to 
court by his master, Capt. Feme, after a fruitless attempt to arrest him, 
and committed to prison for such a slander of the Bostonians, or of their 
government. — Scan. Mag. A "tumult" among the seamen was aroused, 
which was pacified by accepting the king's colors from Capt. Palmer of 
the St. Patrick, and setting them up a short time on Castle Island, for all 
to salute, and doubtless by discharging the mate from arrest. All this 
was graphic, and has been used by various engravers. It was sure to be 
reported largely among the politicians and officials in England. We can 
estimate the wide disagreements in verbal stories and written reports 
which these occurrences produced at the time, by noticing the discrepant 
views of historians afterwards in the mere attempt to recite them. In this 
way, and by private letters and accounts, we get public history and the 
names of some of the ships and their masters. 

Three ships arrived at Boston in November, full of passengers ; one 
after a passage of 18 weeks, the others in somewhat less time. Rev d 
Nathaniel Rogers came in one, but few of the passengers are named and 
traced. Among them was Rev d Ralph Partridge. In this year the ship 
Desire, of 120 tons, was built at Marblehead, among the fishermen. In 
January, 1635-6, R. Hollingworth, shipwright, before named (p. 75), it 
was ordered at Salem, might have half an acre in the place he desired, 
but must take so much from his 2 acres or house lot elsewhere. On 18th 
April, 1636, there was, by order, "granted unto M' John Holgrave, fisher- 
man, three-quarters of an acre of land upon Winter Island, for flakes, 
&c." (to cure fish), and " half an acre without Winter Island, for his house 
lot." Also, to his son Joshua Holgrave, a house lot, &c. This is the 
earliest entry noticed of land granted on the Salem side of the bay, for a 
fisherman. It was followed by other orders from time to time, of small 
pieces fronting on the water, for fishermen and for shipwrights. On nth 
July, 1636, Thomas More, sonne to widow More, and his wife, were "re- 
ceived for inhabitants," and were to have " one fishing lott on the Neck." 
This was one of the first lots granted on Salem Neck, on the west side of 

IC2 Shipwrights, Fishermen and Passengers from England. [Oct., 

winter harbor, near the mouth — a good landing and launching-place near 
the open sea — not fit for a residence. John Herbert had an adjoining 
lot. Both afterwards of Southold, on June, 1656, conveyed to Mordecai 
Craford. The lots were never built upon. 

On 17th of February, 1636/7, "XXfor Yong " (meaning Christopher 
Young), " was received for an inhabitant and may have half an acre with 
William Browne." . He afterwards had land allotted him and died in 1647, 
leaving an inventory and will, which are instructive. There is a small 
waste book preserved at Salem, of entries between the dates of 26th Decem- 
ber, 1636, and 1 2th July, 1637, giving names and number of acres allowed, 
which is useful. 

In the year 1636 there began a suspension of emigration from England. 
William Wood's book had exhausted its power, or perhaps was counter- 
acted by reports of distress. Archbishop Laud was in active power and 
getting more furious. Rev. Mr. Davenport, afterwards of New Haven, 
left London for Holland. The officers of government were prosecuting 
strong measures of restraint, designed to master and subdue its clerical dis- 
sentients, and especially to condemn the clergymen who left the State 
Church and led off their religious followers from the old churches ; of 
course, opposed to their emigration to New England. 

A small parchment-covered volume at London, marked "A.D. 1637, 
13 Car. I.," contains a record of persons ''desirous to pass beyond seas." 
It has but sixteen written leaves, and is much taken up with the names of 
persons going to Holland. It says : " Isaac Wrighte," of Norwich, a single 
man, was desirous " to go to Layden in Holland, there to inhabit." He 
was probably the same man who afterward appeared at Hingham, Mass., 
with Henry Tuthill. The latter came with his wife, Bridget, to Southold, 
L. I., and died soon, his wife, Bridget, becoming the wife of the first William 
Wells, of Southold. This volume has a list of people who "went to New 
England with William Andrews, of Ipswich, M r of the John & Dorothy of 
Ipswich, and with William Andrews, his son, M r of the Rose of Yarmouth." 
The present writer has before mentioned the pursuit of the weavers (Vol. 
4 of the Record, p. 19). This list embraces the families of five of them, 
with three others from Norwich, England, a manufacturing place up the 
river, navigable for small vessels, about twenty miles from Great Yarmouth. 
The three others were John Baker, grocer, William Ludken, locksmith, 
Samuel Dix, joiner. It embraces several families of husbandmen from 
Ormsby, in Norfolk County, about five miles north of Yarmouth, near the 
coast ; and one from Scratley, a part of Ormsby ; also two from New 
Buckingham, not far up the river from Yarmouth. It gives the names and 
ages of all the members of the family, including servants. Persons em- 
ployed or attached to the family were called servants. We should not call 
them so now. Several persons and families, were entered as examined on 
nth and 12th April, 1637, at Great Yarmouth. Many families on this list 
have been traced. Some appeared at Salem on 12th July. The next 
vessel was the Mary Anne, of Yarmouth, in which the Rev. John Youngs, 
with his wife and six children, took passage, but he " went not from Yar- 
mouth." The list has been copied repeatedly, but requires a full and 
critical examination. The list in May, 1637, was headed by Thomas 
Payne, before mentioned as a weaver (Vol. 4, p. 19), with wife and 
six children, part of his family. His son Peter probably came in advance 
and secured a house for him at Salem. He asked " a little p'cell of land 

i879-J Shipwrights, Fishermen and Passengers from England. k^ 

next his house," on 28th August, 1637. On 10th April, 1638, he made 
his will, describing himself as part owner of " the ship Mary Ann of Salem." 
(1 Essex Ins., p. 3.) He died before 21st February, 1640. His widow, 
Elizabeth, afterwards came to Southold, and their sons, Peter and John, 
and one at least of their daughters. For curious ancient pedigree, see 5 
New Eng. Reg r \ 331, and modern family publications. 

Philemon Dickerson shipped on the Mary Ann (with Benjamin Cooper), 
married Mary, the eldest daughter of M r - Payne, and came with her after- 
wards to Southold. William Goose (or Gooch) was named as master of the 
Mary Anne ; probably a son of William Goose and wife, Agnes, daughter 
of Thomas Palgrave. (See Palgrave Memorial, p. 52.) Fifty acres were 
granted him at Salem in 1636, before his arrival on the voyage in question, 
from which may be inferred a prior voyage by him. D r " Richard Palgrave 
came over in 1630. It seems that Capt. Gooch lived on the Neck near 
Richard Hollingvvorth, having a small lot granted next to his father Hol- 
grave's, near winter harbors, but was not prosperous. 

Samuel Greenfield embarked in the Mary Anne, at Yarmouth, on 12th 
May, 1637, with wife Mary and two children, described of Norwich, weaver, 
next after the Youngs family. He appeared at Salem on 14th August, 
was received an inhabitant, and allowed ten acres, but did not remain 

Entries in the town books about lands, as well as printed publications, 
have to be used to supply the defects of family records and passenger lists. 
At Christmas, on 25th December, 1637, after the arrival of the Mary Ann, 
it was agreed or determined at Salem that the marsh and meadow lands 
previously used in common should be " appropriated to the inhabitants of 
Salem ; proportioned out to them according to the heads of their families ; 
to those that have the greatest number (in their families) an acre thereof; 
and to those that have least, not above half an acre ; and to those that are 
between both, 3 quarters of an acre ; always provided, and it is so agreed 
that none shall sell away their proportions of meadow, more or less, nor 
lease them out to any above three years, unless they sell or lease out their 
houses with their meadow." This seems to have arisen from some disap- 
pointment among the new arrivals at not receiving so much land, or so 
easily, as had been promised. . The village had reduced its house plots 
from four acres to two acres, etc., and plots were scarce. The town mag- 
nates required village plots to be surrendered or sold, as a condition of 
granting to persons who held them, larger lots in the interior. A list has 
been preserved showing the names of 226 heads of families who participated 
in this division of meadow-land, mentioning the number of persons in each 
family, and the quantity of land (one. acre, three-quarters of an acre, or half 
an acre) allotted to each. It is the fullest and most reliable list of the in- 
habitants of Salem, at that early period having families, that has been 
noticed. It indicates, with less certainty, their probable neighborhood to 
each other. Numbers are put to these names merely to identify them and 
trace them more readily. Thus, No. 1 was "lo: Sibly, 1 " (person) "■£" 
(an acre) ; No. 4, " Hen. Herricke, 5 " (persons) "■$■'' (of an acre) ; No. 
5, "Tho. Tracy 1, £"; No. 7, " lo : Hart, 3 f ; No. 8, " M r Yong "

The shipwrights needed good timber as the crude material and basis of 
all their work. There was enough in the wild country. That nearest to 
their ship-yards, or most easily got there, was to them the most attractive. 
They desired the best kinds of wood, the white oak, live oak, etc., and 
wished to select also the pieces, the long keel and kelson, the short and 
crooked knees and beams, each of the right size, shape, and bend. They 
were thus much exposed to interference with each other, and with other 
carpenters and woodmen. Some doubtless cut the trees wastefully, such 
as Pickering, the house-builder, ancestor of Timothy. We are left to 
watch and study the wisdom of the town rules respecting the common land. 
On 28th November, 1636, the town officers ordered that any person who 
should fell any timber or trees, and take a part for use, leaving the tops 
and rest of the tree so felled one month uncut and not set up together (or 
corded), should pay a penalty of $s., except such as grew upon their own 
lots. And one month after cutting a tree, if not removed, any other man 
might take it to his own use. Shipwrights finding land conveyance diffi- 
cult would float the timber down the river, but soon had to tow it by water 
from a distance, or remove. 

The difficulties in England, and the civil war which broke out, disturbed 
a great many things, as well as passenger lists. But it is needless to pur- 
sue them in detail. Enough has been stated to give the idea. The entries 
at Boston are very fully given in Drake's History of Boston ; those of 
Watertown, in Bond's Watertown, and others in other works. The original 
MSS. of the Passenger Lists obtained by M r - S. G. Drake, published in the 
N. E. Hist. Genl. Reg., and in a separate work, have come to the hands 
of a member of our Society, and they favor the detection of a few errors. 
The later work of John C. Hotten has been noticed in the 6th volume of 
the Record, p. 52. 

Capt. Jeremy Horton, on 18th August, 1626, by report, was the mas- 
ter and owner of the ship Swallow, of Barnstable, in England ; and in 1633 
and 1638 made voyages to America. We have no precise account of them. 
In a subsequent voyage he was shipwrecked and several lives were lost, the 
master and crew arriving at Boston, but vessel and cargo lost. By tradi- 
tion, Barnabas Horton, afterwards of Southold, and his family, came over 
in the Swallow in 1638 (Horton Genealogy, Pref. xi.). 

William Booth and John P'ranklin had land at Barbadoes in 1638 ; prob- 
ably the same persons afterwards of Southold. John Booth, before coming 
to Southold in 165 1, was at Barbadoes. He left England with merchandise, 
which was wrecked in the Swallow ; probably the vessel commanded by 
Capt. Jeremy Horton. John Conkling, the ancestor of the Southold and 
Huntington families of Conkling, appeared at Salem on 14th September, 
1640. Ananias Conklin, probably the ancestor of the East Hampton 
family, was at Salem a few years earlier. The Glass Works require a sep- 
arate history. 

The shipwrights were often part owners of vessels. They met with the 
disasters of seizures, law-suits, and shipwrecks. Our public records and 
publications have preserved many accounts. We need only give some 
samples. In 1653, lt seems Thomas More and John Herbert were part 
owners of a vessel commanded by Capt. (afterwards Col.) John Youngs, 

1 8 79.] History of the Early Settlers of Kings County, IV. Y. \ c c 

which was seized by the Dutch at the breaking out of the war with Crom- 
well's government, but escaped. In 1662, the suit of Charles Glover vs. 
James Mills brought out the shipwrights of Southold, L. I., including 
Thomas More, in New Haven Historical Collections. In Mather's Mag- 
nolia, vol. ii., p. 347, Hartford Ed., the loss of the Providence, John 
Grafton, of Salem, master, on a voyage in 1670 from New England to the 
West Indies, is largely improved. In 1673, M r ' Grafton was owner of 
the Nightingale (John Ingersoll, master, who settled in Huntington, L. I.), 
taken by the Dutch at New York. 

In 1676 the protest of Capt. Benj. More against the sufficiency of the 
"Thomas & John," which had sailed for Barbadoes and put back, is 
recorded. The loss of a vessel under Capt. More, from Southold, at 
Eastham, Mass., in March, 1685, is mentioned in Mass. Hist. Collec- 
tions, 4th Series, 5th vol., p. 132. Those relating to a small circle of 
shipwrights may serve as sufficient samples of others. The supplies of 
the settlements along the coast were transported in small trading vessels ; 
articles of produce being often taken in exchange for merchandise. There 
was little money. The masters were more of the character of traders than 
-—of seamen. They may be left for separate accounts. 

The Dutch passenger lists and shipwrights are needed to fill out the pic- 
ture, or to extend it further south. The difference of language makes a 
difficulty — the same as a.t Babel. But much of the Dutch has been trans- 
lated. M r - O'Callaghan, in his History of New Netherlands, in two vol- 
umes, developed some of the details. He gave us a list of the principal 
patents or land grants, 626 in number, from 1630 to 1646, in vol. ii., p. 5. 
He reported in vol. i., p. 433, the names of early settlers of Rensselaer- 
wich, from 1630 to 1646, compiled from the records preserved, telling us 
of passengers in different vessels. 

Others, including the Annals of Albany, by Munsell, follow out the 
plan. The church records, much more full and useful than the English, 
describe the nativity and residence of each newly married pair, and at 
baptisms tell the maiden name of the mother, and the names of sponsors, 
who "stood up," as the children say, to an extent that greatly favors 
the forming of correct pedigrees, and the tracing of early settlers to their 
origin and neighborhood. 

In the Documentary History of New York, vol. hi., 4 to, p. ^^, we 
have some account of passengers and soldiers, and of the vessels in which 
they arrived, from 1657 to 1664. Many other records aid a full develop- 
ment. We must leave them to the genealogists.

of Braband, where he or his ancestors may at one period have resided. He 
was a carpenter or wheelwright by trade, and married Jacomina, or Jaco- 
mynchy, daughter of Jacob Swartz, of New Amsterdam, and died in 1706. 
From New Amsterdam he appears to have removed to Brooklyn, where he 
was fined, April 9, 1658, for refusing to pay his quota of Dominie Pol- 
hemius's salary. Aug. 10, 1670, by permission of the Director-General, he 
returned to Holland in the ship " Fort of Albany," Jacques Cousseau, 
Master. May 15, 167 1, a pass was given to Jacomynchy, his wife, and her 
three children, in the ship "Duke of York," Johannes Luyck, Master, to 
go to Holland, she thus following him. He and his wife kept house at 
Zwolle, a city on the Zwarte or Black Water, and the Willemsvaart, in 
Overyssel ; but not prospering, they returned, in 1679, in the ship the 
Charles, the vessel in which were embarked Peter Sluyter and Jasper 
Dankers, De Labidists, whose interesting Journal has been translated by the 
Hon. H. C. Murphy, and published by the Long Island Historical So- 
ciety. On his return, he finally settled on a plantation or farm, located, 
as the boundary now runs, partly in the towns of New Utrecht and Flat- 
bush, conveyed to him Aug. 23, 1680, by Jacques Cortelyou, his brother- 
in-law, as per page 231, of Liber 1, of Conveyances, in the office of the 
Register of the County of Kings. Cortelyou appears to have conveyed, 
as the successor of Van Werckhoven, who claimed under a patent and In- 
dian purchase covering the main part of New Utrecht, including the Van 
Duyn tract. This farm is now owned by the heirs of George Martense, 
deceased. In 1687 he took the oath of allegiance in New Utrecht, of 
which town he was a Magistrate in 1687 and '88, and a Justice of the 
Peace in 1689 and '90. Jan. 12, 168*, he purchased of Lowrents Jan- 
sen (son of Jan Lowrents) a farm on the new lots of New Utrecht, between 
those of Anthony Du Ceen, or Seen, and Anthony Van Pelt, with a part 
of the Point lying along the land of John Ditmas. The one-half of this 
lot he conveyed, Feb. 24, 169°, to Anthony Du Ceen. Feb. 24, 169°, he 
bought of Anthony Du Ceen his half lot in New Utrecht, lying adjoining 
Van Duyn's land. Both of these conveyances are recorded in the town 
records of New Utrecht. June 6, 1698, he conveyed to his son Denyse 
the farm he bought of Cortelyou, as per page 174, of Lib. 2, of Convey- 
ances, in Kings County Register's office ; and April 16, 1705, he conveyed 
to his son Cornelis the land purchased of Lowrents Jansen and Du Ceen 
for ^450, containing, including the land in the Neck or Point, 111 acres, 
as per page 49, of Liber 3, of Conveyances, in office of the Register of 
Kings County. His will is dated June 30, 1705, proved June 14, 1706, 
and recorded on page 250, of Lib. 7, of Wills, in the office of the Surrogate 
of the City of N. Y., in which, among other devises, he divides his Dutchess 
County lands, which he bought of Peter Cortelyou, equally among his

iosh., a farm at Gowanus (probably that of W m Heocken), 400 rods in 
length, and 78^ rods in width, as per page 12, of Lib. 2, of Conveyances, in

beeck, a farm in Gowanus, as per page 210, of Lib. 2, of Con., in Kings C°

which he resided, which was afterwards owned by Peter Wyckoff, and the 
Vanderbeeck one, the farm of the late Richard Berry. With 1 7 others, in 
1 7 10, he bought what is known as the Harlington tract in Somerset C°,

veyed to him by his father, and then (probably as early as 1703) removed 
to Three Mile Run, Somerset C°, N. J., where he appears to have re- 
sided as late as 1723. Returned to the homestead farm, where he died. 
Took the oath of allegiance in Flatbush in 1687 — on census of said town of 
1698, and in 1707 a deacon in the Reformed Dutch Church of said town.

When the ship Charles, belonging to Margaret Philipse, sailed from 
Amsterdam, in Holland, in the month of June, 1679, on ner return voyage 
to New Amsterdam, freighted with a heavy cargo and a large number of 
passengers, including the two Labadists, Jasper Dankers and Peter Sluyter, 
then on a missionary journey to the New World to discover a retreat for 
their sect, she had among the sailors young Robert or Robyn Sinclair, " a 
Scotchman by birth, from the Orkneys, and a Presbyterian by profession." 
He appears to have been on familiar terms with the passengers, and is par- 
ticularly noticed by the Labadists in their Journal, in which they speak of 
him as the " best " of the persons with whom they made the voyage. 

He was, probably, one of the Sinclair family of the Orkneys or Orcades 
Islands, descendants of the Earls of Orkney. (Playfair's Brit. Fam. Antiq., 
Vol. 8, p. 188.) 

On Sunday, the 16th July, 1679, while the vessel was lying in the harbor 
of Falmouth, in England, they relate that " Robyn " took them ashore at 
their request, to the Presbyterian Meeting at that place, which they "left 
quite satisfied with the Zeal of the preacher." 

They arrived in the harbor of New York on Saturday, the 23 d of Sep- 
tember, 1679, and the Labadists, leaving their property on the vessel in the 
care of their young friend Robyn (Sinclair), went ashore. For his urbanity 
and politeness to them throughout the voyage they express their frequent 
grateful acknowledgments. 

It appears that when, on the 25 th of October following, the ship sailed 
from New York on her voyage back to Amsterdam, young Sinclair went 
with her, and the Labadists entrusted him with their letters and a copy of 
their Journal to be conveyed to their friends in Holland. 

We have no further authoritative report of him until the record of his 
marriage with Maryken Duycking in the Dutch Church, at New York, on 
the 15 th August, 1683, in these words : " Robbert Sinclaer, j. m. van de Or- 
cades en Maryken Duycking, j. d. rati N. York." 

It is to be noticed that on the above-mentioned voyage of the Charles, 
Evert Duycking or Duyckinck, came as her " Dutch Mate." He was the 
son of Evert and Hendrickje (Simons) Duyckinck, and was returning from 
Amsterdam, where he had been for some time a resident, and where he 
married, bringing with him to New York, his wife and two young children, 
whose names, however, are not there given. Maryken or Maria Duycking, 
who married Robert Sinclair, less than four years subsequently to the above 
voyage, was a younger sister of the " Dutch Mate, Evert." Sinclair evi- 
dently continued to "follow the sea" as a profession. From the year 
1684 he is styled Captain, in the public records. On the 23 rd February, 
1 69 1, he makes a disposition in the interest of Governor Leisler, in which 
he is described as " of the City of New- York, in America, Commander of 
the ship Resolution," and he makes oath that he had been " an inhabitant 
of the said City about nine years." Doc. His. of N. Y., Vol. II., p. 402. 

1 8 79. J Genealogical Fragments. 171 

He had issue by his wife, Marritie Duycking : 
i. Hendrickje, bap. July 6, 1684. 
ii. Jacobus, bap. Sept. 30, 1685. 
iii. Evert, bap. Oct. 30, 1687. 
iv. Anna, bap. Feb. 1, 1691. 
v. Robert, bap. Aug. 27, 1693. 
vi. James, bap. April 21, 1695. 
Of these children all died young, except his daughter Anna, who subse- 
quently married Charles Crommelin, and was the great-great-grandmother 
of the late Hon. Gulian Crommelin Verplanck. 

By the census of the families and domestic households of the inhabitants 
of the City, taken in 1703, it appears that his family then consisted of "2 
males, 1 female, 1 child, 1 negro, 1 negress, and 1 negro child." Valen- 
tine's His. of the City of New York, p. 359. 

Robert Sinclair died in the year 1704, and left the following will: 

/;/ tlie name of God, Amen. 

Be it known and manifest unto all People that I, Robert Sinclair, of the 
City of New York, Marriner, being at this Present very sick and weak in 
body, yet in the perfect exercise of my reason and understanding, consid- 
ering the frailty of this present life, the certainty of the death, and the un- 
certain time and hour thereof, have thought fit to make and ordaine, as I 
do by these presents make ordaine and declare this writing to be my last 
free and uncontrouled will and testament, hereby revoaking annulling and 
making void all former wills or testaments by mee heretofore made, willing 
that these presents shall only be of force after my decease. 

Imprimis, Recommending my immortal soul into the merciful hands of 
the most high God, my Creator, hoping and only trusting for mercy and 
the pardon of my manifold sinns and transgressions in and thro' the meri- 
torious death and passion of the blessed Son of God, my Saviour and Re- 
deemer, Jesus Christ, and my body to the Earth, there to be decently 
interred according to discretion of my Executors hereafter named in hopes 
of a blessed Resurrection at the last day. And as for the disposition of 
what temporall estate, the Lord of his mercy has been pleased to bestow 
upon me, my debts and funeral expenses first paid and satisfyed, the same 
is to be disposed of in manner following. I give and bequeath all my es- 
tate both reall and personall none in the world excepted or reserved to be 
by her used possessed enjoyed and disposed of, as unto my dear and en- 
tirely well beloved wife Maria Sinclair shall seem meet, hereby immediately 
after my decease vesting my said wife in free and peaceable possession 
and seizin thereof without any contradiction of my heirs or any of them, 
with full power and authority to sell alienate, dispose and convey any part 
of all my reall Estate as shee shall seem meet, and this to continue dureing 
she remains my widow, and her conveyance or conveyances for all or any 
part of my reall estate after my decease, by her to be made and executed 
during she remains my widdow shall be good and effectual in the law to 
make an estate of inheritance to y e party or partyes purchasing the same 
from her against my heirs or any of them forever. But in case my wife 
should remarry, my will and pleasure is that in such case my wife shall 
before the consummation thereof my wife transport and make over the 
one half or full moiety of all my Estate both reall and personall unto my 
only daughter Anna procreated by my said wife to be held used and en- 

I J 2 Genealogical Fragme7its. [Oct., 

joyed by her and her heirs forever, and the other half to be and remaine 
unto my said wife and her heirs and assigns forever : and in case my said 
daughter should at such be yet in her nonage or unmarryed, my wife is to 
give security for the performance thereof when the child comes of age or 
be marryed ; but in case my said daughter should dy in her nonage or 
unmarryed, in such case my will and pleasure is that all my estate reall and 
personall shall be forever inherited by my said wife, if she be then alive, 
she paying within one year after my, said daughters decease unto the Cor- 
poracon of the Dutch Reformed Church of this City of New Yorke for the 
use of the poor of the said Church the sum of one hundred and fifty pounds 
good and lawful money of this Province. And in case my said wife should 
dy my widdovv, then all my estate shall immediately devolve unto my said 
daughter Anna her heirs and assigns forever, and if such case my daughter 
should then dye in her nonage, then all my estate shall be inherited by the 
parties hereafter named, that is to say, one half thereof to my wifes Cozin 
Evert Duyckinck, my wifes brother Gerret Uuyckink, my wifes sister

Cornell. — It is stated in the record of the proceedings in the suit of Charles Bridges 
and Sarah his wife, plaintiffs, against Thomas Pell, defendant, before the Court of 
Assize, September 29, 1665, that Thomas Cornell left a will appointing his widow his 
executrix, and that by virtue of her authority as such executrix, she sold and conveyed to 
their two daughters, of whom the plaintiff, Sarah Bridges, was one, and Rebecca Woolsey, 
wife of George Woolsey, was the other, the lands known as Cornell's Neck, Westchester 
County. Is there any record now existing of this will ? And where is it to be found ? 


Jauncey. — In 1663 Mr. James Jauncey, of London, was the owner of two proprietary 
shares of land at Somerset, one of the Bermuda Islands. His descendants still own and 
occupy at least a part of this land. In 1671 Mr. Jauncey was a director of the Ber- 
muda Company of London, and member of a committee appointed to suppress the 
smuggling of tobacco from the Islands. It is probable that he soon ceased to be a 
director and removed to Bermuda. 

In 1684, John Jauncey e was a member of the General Assembly of Bermuda, and he, 
with the Speaker and thirty-one others, petitioned the King for relief from the tyrannical 
rule of the proprietary government, a movement which ended in the revocation of the 
company's charter. (See Lefroy's " Memorials, etc., of the Discovery and Settlement of 
the Bermudas," London, 1879.) 

These Jaunceys were undoubtedly ancestors of the brothers James and John Jauncey, 
who came to New York from Bermuda about fifty years 'prior to the American Revolu- 

Any information relative to the English, Bermudian, or American Jaunceys will be 
gratefully received. J. o. B. 

Willett — Jones. — In the interesting biographical sketch of Judge Thomas Jones, 
appended to his " History of New York," recently published by the New York Histori- 
cal Society, the editor has unluckily fallen into the error of naming Col. (he should 
have written Capt.) Thomas Willett, First Mayor of New York under the English, as the 
ancestor of Anna Willett, who became the wife of the author's father, Judge David Jones. 

1 82 Notes on Books. [Oct., 

He states correctly that she was the second daughter of Col. William Willett of Willett's 
Point, Westchester County. 

Now, the writer of this note understands it to be a well authenticated and established 
fact, that this Col. William Willett was a descendant (probably in the fourth generation) 
from Thomas Willett of Bristol, England, who on ist September, 1643, was married in 
the Dutch Church, New York, to Sarah Cornell, daughter of Thomas Cornell, from Essex 
County, England. They had two children only ; William, baptized June 20, 1644, and 
Thomas, Nov. 25, 1645. From these two sons came the Willetts of Westchester County, 
and of Flushing, L. I., except that it is possible some of the descendants of Samuel 
Willett, the youngest son of Capt. Thomas Willett (mayor), may have resided at the 
latter place. The records of Plymouth and Rhode Island justify me in challenging any 
(pretended) proof that Capt. Thomas Willett (Mayor) had either a son, grandson or 
great-grandson named William Willett. He had a son Thomas, born at Plymouth, but 
he died unmarried. 

It is not unlikely that Capt. Thomas Willett of Plymouth, and Thomas Willett of 
New York were of the same family : for if the former was a son, as supposed, of the Rev. 
Andrew Willett, rector of Barley, in Herts, he was of course related to Henry Willett 
of Merley, in Dorset ; and there are pretty strong reasons for believing that the T. W. 
who was from Bristol, in Gloucestershire, was of the Henry Willett branch. 


Correction. — Van Wagenen. — I wish to correct an error I made on page 107, vol. 
10, of the Record, respecting Sarah, wife of Peter Van Wagenen. She was the daugh- 
ter of Isaac Plume and his first wife Sarah Crane. Annacha Van Wagenen was his second 
wife. v. w.

The New England Historic Genealogical Society are entitled to the grateful acknowl- 
edgments of genealogical inquirers by reproducing in exact fac-simile this rare work. 
The original was compiled and published in 1771 by Luke Stebbins, of Kensington, Con- 
necticut, the sixth son of Samuel and Hannah (Hitchcock) Stebbins, and is believed to be 
the first American genealogy ever printed. It has now become so scarce that only two 
perfect copies are known to exist in this country, one of which has recently come into the 
possession of the Society by whom this reprint is issued, under the direction and supervi- 
sion of its Library Committee, one hundred copies only being printed. The original 
work contained simply what the title-page purported to give, viz., the descendants of the 
parents of the author. The value of this reprint is greatly enhanced by the addition of a 
tabular pedigree of the family, prepared by Henry W. Holland, Esq., of Boston, show- 
ing other descendants from Rowland Stebbins, the first immigrant of 1634, who settled 
in Springfield in the following year. There is also added an index of names, which in- 
cludes as well those contained in the tabular pedigree. The whole forms a handsome 
book in convenient quarto form, neatly bound in cloth. Price $2. J. J. L.

[The White Family Record.] Account of the Meeting of the Descendants 
of Colonel Thomas White of Maryland, [Arms] held at Sophia's Dairy, 
on the Bush River, Maryland, June 7, 1877. Including Papers read on 
that Occasion, together with others then referred to and since pre- 
pared. Philadelphia. 1879. [Large 4to, pp. 211.J 

Ninety-eight years prior to the 7th clay of June, 1877, the remains of Col. Thomas 
White of Maryland, the father of Bishop White of that State, had reposed in the ancient 
burial ground of the family on the farm known as " Cranberry Hall," near Perrymansville, 
Harford Co., Maryland. Those of his wife, Sophia (Hall) White, had lain in the same 
plot for a period of one hundred and twenty-eight, years. The farm had passed out of 
the hands of the family, and on the day above named the descendants had met to 
superintend and witness the disinterment and removal of the ashes to the more secure 
churchyard of Old St. George's at Spesutiae. This event was opportunely made the 
occasion for the family reunion, and for hearing the reading of the historical papers now 
published in this handsome volume. Besides the circumstantial account of the ceremonies 
of the disinterment, removal, and reburial of the remains, the publication embraces the 
following papers :

Wight. — Amherst Wight, one of the oldest lawyers of the New York Bar, died at his 
residence in Port Chester, N. Y., on Friday, January 10, 1879, in the eighty-eighth 
year of his age. He was a descendant of Thomas Wight, who is reputed to have emi- 
grated from the Isle of Wight, and settled at Dedham, Mass., in 1635. His father, 
Eliab Wight, attained the age of 95 years. His grandfather, Rev. Elnathan Wight, was 
Pastor of the First Baptist Church in Bellingham, Mass., over which he was ordained 
anuary 14, 1755.

Obituary. [Oct., 1879. 

The subject of this notice was born at Bellingham, Mass., June 15, 1791, in the 
same house which is said to have been occupied by the family for the past two hundred 
years. He graduated from Brown University, Rhode Island, in 1813, and soon after 
came to this city, and entered the office of Josiah Hawes, as a law-student. He was 
admitted to practise in the Supreme Court in this city, on the 30th of October, 1S16. 

In June, 1816, Mr. Wight was elected a member of the New England Society, and in 
1817 was chosen its Secretary, which office he filled with fidelity for five successive years, 
and afterwards became one of the most active members of the Charity Committee of the 
Society. At the time of his death he is believed to have been the oldest surviving mem- 
ber of the Society. 

He married, in 1826, Johanna G. Sanderson, daughter of John Sanderson of Newburgh, 
N. Y ; she still survives at the age of eighty-two years. Six children, two sons and four 
daughters, were the issue of this marriage. His son, Amherst Wight, Junior, represented 
the second Assembly district of Westchester County in the Legislature of iS73-'74- 
Peter Bonnett Wight, his surviving son, resides in Chicago, To his architectural taste 
and skill the cities of New Haven, New York, and Brooklyn are indebted for many of 
their prominent public buildings. L. 

Breese. — Sidney Breese, born at Whitesboro', N. Y., 15th July, 1800; died at Pink- 
neyville, 111., 27th June, 1S7S, was the son of Arthur Breese, Clerk of the Supreme 
Court of New York, and Catharine, his wife, daughter of Judge Henry Livingston, of 
Poughkeepsie, (Rec. 5, p: 76). He was graduated at Union College, in 1S18, removed 
to Kaskaskia, 111., and in 1820 commenced the practice of law. In 1822 he was appointed 
prosecuting attorney of the second district, and held the office for nine years. He was 
law partner of Elias Kent Kane, also from Whitesboro', who was afterward U. S. Sena- 
tor from Illinois. In 1831 Judge Breese published a volume of law reports. In 1832 
he served as Lieutenant-Colonel in the Black Hawk war and won a distinguished reputa- 
tion as officer and soldier. In 1835 he was elected Judge of the second circuit, and in 
1841 Judge of the Supreme Court of Illinois. In 1842 he was elected to the U. S. 
Senate and served a full term. In 1850 he was Speaker of the Assembly. In 1855 he 
was again Circuit Judge, and in 1S57 Judge of the Supreme Court of which he was three 
times Chief Justice. The able, candid, and impartial demeanor of Judge Breese on the 
Bench were admitted and recognized by all who appeared before him. His honesty and 
fairness were never questioned. He was fully identified with the history of the State of 
Illinois, from its admission into the Union, the very year in which he took up his residence 
there, until his lamented decease. He had made extensive collections with a view of writing 
the history of the State. His residence was principally at Carlisle. He married 4th Sept., 
1823, Eloise, second daughter of William Morrison, who removed from Pennsylvania to 
Kaskaskia in 1790. They had seven children (Rec. 5, 77). 

His brother, Samuel Livingston Breese. born at Whitesboro', 6th Aug., 1794, died at 
Mt. Airy, near Philadelphia, 17th Dec, 1870; was Rear-Admiral of the United States 
Navy. The first ancestor of the family in America was Sidney Breese, born at Shrews- 
bury, in England, in 1709, died in the City of New York in 1767. He was a Jacobite, 
and was on the point of joining the young Pretender, but on the failure of his projects 
emigrated to New York in 1756, where he married Elizabeth Pinkerman. He was an ec- 
centric character, and wrote the following epitaph erected over his grave in Trinity Church- 
yard : 

Ha ! Sidney ! Sidney ! 

Lyest thou here? 

I here lye, 

Till time is flown 

To its extremity. 

(Bagg's Pioneers of Utica, p. 261.) 
His only child was Col. Samuel Breese, of the 3d Regiment of New Jersey, in the war 
of Independence, who married the daughter of Rev. James Anderson. Col. Breese re- 
sided at Shrewsbury, N. J., which place was named in honor of the old home of the 
family in England. M. D. bagg.

their families. The pages of The RECORD are devoted to 
the following subjects, and contributions of such materials are 
invited : 

Biographies of Citizens and Residents of the Province and 
State of New York ; Family Genealogies ; Copies of Ancient 
Church, Town, and State Records, and Inscriptions on Tomb- 
stones ; Pedigrees and Ancient Wills; Essays on Historical 
Subjects relating to Genealogy, Biography and Heraldry, with 
illustrations of Family Arms, Crests, and Seals ; together with 
announcements and notices of works on these several subjects ;

genealogical student ; which, by donation, exchange and otherwise, is steadily increasing. 


The stated meetings of the Society are held on the second and fourth Friday of 
each month (excepting July, August and September), at half-past seven o'clock p. m. , 
at the Mott Memorial Hall, 64 Madison Avenue, New York. At the meeting on the 
second Friday, papers will be read or addresses delivered. The meeting on the 
fourth Friday will be of a business and conversational character. These meetings 
are open to the public. 


Membership. — For admission to the Society, the candidate must be nominated by a 
member, in writing ; be approved and voted in at a regular meeting. The initiation fee 
is Five dollars, and Resident Membership requires the payment, annually, of Five dol- 
lars. The Life membership fee (in lieu of all annual assessments) is Fifty dollars. The 
Clerks of the several Counties and Towns of the State are members of this Society
